  • It's lies, spies and pies as the Blue Mooners try to scrape up some cash by tracking down deadbeats.

    A mystery man arrives in the country. He had just avoided getting on a flight that was destroyed. Why is he here, who is he looking for and can he be stopped in time?

    Over to the good detectives, who are in the midst of one of their periodic money struggles. Dave comes up with the scheme of working some accounts for a debt collection service. Maddie is reluctant but caves in.

    They meet the first subject, and he's big enough to have his own post office. He fails to respond to polite does the next man, he of the uncanny luck with airplanes. This one won't be paying either, unless he can write checks from beyond the grave. An even more shadowy operative got to him first.

    The gumshoes alert the cops, who can't find either the killer or the body. Back to the office--where they are trailed by agents who could have good or bad intentions, and it's not worth waiting to find out. They hotfoot it out of there.

    So do the agents.

    One of them corners the detectives and lets them in on a little secret. He's one of the good guys.


    And he must meet a foreign emissary at a dinner tonight. Sounds fine and dandy.

    Then why does he give them the creeps?

    Something is wrong with this little operation. David and Maddie break into the opulent dinner and try to beat him to the target.

    They say revenge is a dish best served cold. And hurled through the air at a high rate of speed.

    An exciting and funny episode with one of the best ending sequences on offer.
