A bit like King Lear in the time of Gangsters....
28 March 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When the show begins, Duke Monte is caught with a suitcase of counterfeit money. Somehow Ness knew this would be the case and Duke and his right-hand man, Yanos, are anxious to know who talked. They kill one poor schumuck and it turns out it wasn't even him who blabbed! So, Yanos helps Monte escape from prison and they are determined to ferret out the snitch. They eventually contact Ness and promise that Monte will turn himself in IF Ness tells them who squealed. Ness naturally cannot do this...but somehow agrees to this, provided his bosses in Washington say it's okay. Now you KNOW Ness won't give them a name...it would be setting up a murder! In the meantime, a jealous wife, Monte's own daughter, learns that they are looking for a squealer and she is so angry she decides to tell Yanos that her husband, Lou Sultan, is the one! He isn't...but who is the squealer? And, is a gang war about to break out as a result?

This episode is more like a soap opera...or even "King Lear" in many ways. I didn't mind it and think it's worth seeing but apparently the other reviewer so far on this episode hated it. To each his or her own.
