Set a few months after the previous installment, this story opens up a new page in the Rescue Rangers chronicles. Noel and Foxglove are waiting for their first child to enter the world. Queenie stepped down the hive throne for her sister to become engaged with Zipper and they are getting ready for their wedding, just like Chip and Lahwhinie do. After the wedding in Hawaii, Chip and Lahwhinie leave to enjoy the honeymoon, while Rescue Rangers stay in town under Monty's supervision. The Aussie barely managed to adjust to his new role when the new case presented itself, and of international importance, no less - the attempt to assassinate British rodent Prime Minister is underway. And while the team fights the terrorists in Britain, Eva Raboga must meet face to face with the enemy seeking gravesworn revenge...
