John Jack had been invited by Dmitrij Volkov to a job interview (aka a survival test) to see if he was worthy of an assignment from H.A.R.M. The coordinates given was 35.56 North 14.32 East, which lead him to some Roman ruins just outside of Kalkara. John had taken a ferry from Sicily to reach Malta.
