Episode Summary

EDIT
The Great Blue Lake Land and Development Company
AIRED:
While returning to Los Angeles with some bail money for a client, Jim suffers with car trouble and is forced to stop over at the Great Blue Lake, a small town in development. On the advice of the car mechanic, Jim puts the $10,000 bond money in the safe at the Land and Development Office, ensuring to get a receipt from employee Murray Johnson. Being cautious, Jim follows Johnson home sees him use a hidden key to enter. The next day Jim goes back to the Land office, but because Johnson is not present speaks to owner Walter Hart regarding the $10,000. Hart does not believe Jim, because his receipt bears the name of a man Hart does not employ, so Jim calls Sheriff Mitchell, and discovers the $10,000 is not in the safe. Jim takes Mitchell to Johnson’s home, only to find it occupied by Mildred, a waitress. Although Jim shows her the hidden key, she has never heard of Murray Johnson. Jim is determined to regain the money – not caring how, so calls Rocky and asks him to come and bring along ‘Fast Harry’ De Nova. Harry is reluctant, but owes Jim a favour from prison so goes undercover as a salesman for the Land Office. Rocky poses as a customer and is shown the lake – which is in fact wide piece of desert land, but the salesman Tanner, can see everything that he describes – its just in development. Rocky reports back to Jim, seeing it as a swindle, when Walter Hart visits, returning Jim’s money that was found with his ex-employee Terry Birch – aka Murray Johnson. Before he can leave the county Jim is arrested for Birch’s murder and jailed. Using Rocky to lead the Sheriff into a false sense of security Jim busts out of jail by walking out the front door, and steals the record ledgers from Hart’s office, offering to exchange them at ‘the Lake’…moreless
