Mais un hélicoptère de la brigade des stupéfiants les arrête : Leiter apprend que Franz Sanchez est sur le territoire américain, or, l'agent de la CIA poursuit cet insaisissable parrain de la drogue depuis des années. Retrouvant les réflexes de la bonne époque de leur collaboration, Leiter et Bond réussissent à capturer Sanchez à l'issue d'une poursuite aérienne spectaculaire. Une fois Sanchez aux mains de la police américaine, il ne reste plus au futur marié et à son témoin qu'à sauter en parachute au-dessus de l'église. Mais la victoire de Leiter est de courte durée. Sanchez qui a offert une prime de deux millions de dollars à quiconque le libérera, s'évade.
