Another case for the humble man.
17 February 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Art Lomer, A Canadian confidence trickster is in London, and Reeder smells a rat, Sir Jason is pressing Reeder to take on a more pressing case.

Reeder is fiercely clever, but single minded, stubborn, and literally like a dog with a bone as he once again shows here. He has little evidence to act upon, but he does have his bunches and a formidable sense of logic.

It's a fine episode, an intriguing plot, which relies on the charisma of Burden. Lomer and Sparrow made for a decent pair of old rogues. Sir Jason is very good fun. Entertaining 7/10
