Storyline

Jeff and company are hired to protect a collection of priceless jewels while on display in the store, but at night the jewels are locked up in the safe which has burglar alarms protecting it. But when a gang of thieves knock out the power for the entire section of the city where the store is located, it is an easy matter for them to replace the jewels with fakes before the power comes on again. In their escape, they abduct Suzanne who was returning late to the store to pick up a forgotten article. Now, Jeff must discover that a robbery has taken place to find out what became of Suzanne before it is too late. Written by SweetBetsy

I won't repeat the topic already told in the plot line. You have understood that it's a robbery tale and a very ingenious one, folks. And where the gorgeous Suzanne is involved. This episode is tight, sharp as a knife, full of suspense. No investigation here, it's really a heist story, with a good noir atmosphere and supported by a solid acting and characterization. In this kind of scheme, we are always on the robber's side, not the good detectives' one. At least I feel this way. Among the best of the second season so far. Directed by Herb Strock, known for grade B science fiction movies but also as a TV director.

Look out for the young Warren Oates in one of his earliest appearances.
