Episode Summary

EDIT
The Girl in the Bay City Boys Club
AIRED:
Jim poses as Aaron Keil, Newspaper Publisher, to attend the weekly poker game held at the Bay City Boys Club and does quite well. Meanwhile representatives of the club check his car, but his ID checks out. Afterward Jim is followed, but after a quick switch in which he calls the police, follows his stalker. Continuing the Aaron Kiel rouse, he learns his stalker is Kate Flanders, concerned daughter of one of the poker players. Jim reports to his client Mr Phelps and then returns Aaron’s car to Angel at the newspaper. The next day Angel calls, bringing the Boys Club Representatives Thompkins and Mosher who demand to know who hired him. Jim manages to overpower them and they run off. Jim and Angel then go to see Phelps, only to learn from the gardener that Phelps died 3 months before – Angel runs off in fear. Jim goes to uncooperative Bay City Police and then to the District Attorneys office and sees ‘Mr Phelps’ – who in truth is Deputy District Attorney Bert Kimble. Jim demands an explanation, but Kimble will not reveal anything but does want Jim to continue working for him. Jim refuses, but Kimble threatens to pull his PI licence – Jim is not scared, as the whole affair would come out in the hearing, so leaves. Outside he meets ‘Kate Flanders’, who is in fact Deputy District Attorney Kate Doyle. Angry Jim goes home. Kate visits him later and reveals that Kimble is crooked and she is investigating him. Jim agrees to go with her to see Kimble, but they find him dead in his car in the parking lot. The pair seeks sanctuary at Angel’s and figures out that Kimble must have had information on the Boys Club, which is heavy with syndicate people, so the games must be cheated. They check the power company to find the Club is using three times the electricity now than a year ago, but has had no building work done in the office – so this rules out cheating by peephole in the ceiling, but Jim finds that the place was re-wired. Breaking into the club Jim and Kate find miniature cameras in some phoney fire protection systems. They are discovered and a chase through the Club ensues…moreless
