Operation Vol features Alexander Mundy Ex-Cambrioleur recovered by the US government via SIA (Secret Intelligence Agency) to execute certain delicate missions where its special talents are used.

Noah Bain (Malachi Throne) invites him to fly for the government in exchange for her freedom. Hence the famous sentence from the American generic mysteriously disappeared during the replay on 13th rue: "Hey, look, al, i'm not asking you to spy, the just asking you to steal." Litestly "let's see Al I do not ask you to be a spy, all I ask you is to fly".
