Episode Summary

The Reincarnation of Angie
Angela Perris receives a strange telephone call from her brother Tom, so hires Jim and meets him at a bar. There a man who claims to be Federal Agent Bettingen identifies himself, but Jim hits him – why? Because the man used his drivers licence photo on a real Federal ID. How does Jim know that? Because Jim did the same thing for his ‘Federal ID… Jim goes with Angela to Tom’s home and opens the safe, finding thousands of dollars inside. They place it in a safe deposit box. Next morning Jim meets with Federal Agent Dan Shore for breakfast and discuses the death of Agent Bettingen, the impersonator and Ton Perris. Shore is les than co-operative, so Jim poses as an official to get into the office of Tom Perris at the Bundy and Baines Company. Unfortunately Mr Whitlaw rumbles him. Jim decides to place Angela in hiding at a motel, while he investigates further. Unfortunately she is kidnapped and Jim receives a call for ransom but when he attends the exchange the police arrive and find Tom Perris’ body in the trunk of the Firebird.

      • Jim: Well I said he had a federal ID. I didn't say he was a fed. He wasn't.
        Angela Perris: How do you know?
        Jim: Ah, because the picture on his ID was taken against a blue field like your driver's license. Feds have theirs taken against a yellow field. What he did was cut the picture out of his driver's license and paste it into a federal ID, and then encase it in plastic. Nice job, but it was a phony.
        Angela Perris: How can you be so sure?
        Jim: Oh, because that's what I did.
