Martin Harris doesn't exist. He was a false identity assumed by Martin (whose real name is William). William is an assassin hired to kill Bressler and steal his research on a new resilient crop that is worth billions. Liz was his accomplice and the fake Martin was a backup in case William failed to pull through. William goes to the hotel and alerts security, causing everyone to flee the building. The bomb William planted in the hotel explodes, killing Liz. William kills Fake Martin and he and Gina change their identities and leave the country.

Neeson is trying to persuade Herr Strauss and two cops that he really is Dr Martin Harris of Langmore University, and suggests they look for a photo of him online. However, the cop using the computer says that it could take him ages to find a photo of Dr Martin Harris, as "there are more than 40 000 in the USA." This is very true, but as Neeson has already told him not only his name but also his place of work (Langmore university) in reality the cop would have found the photo far more quickly.
