Danger Man Episode 1: View from the Villa

On holidays in Rome, John Drake is summoned to investigate a murder but not just any murder, a murder of a big Bank Manager who is suspected to have stolen 5 million dollars. The bank manager’s wife could not show an emotion over the news of her husbands murder and drake was on the trail of the bullion. Clothing left at the scene of the crime leads drake to a Parisian shop and a mysterious blonde lady or maybe brunette. The picture was clear, drake knew where to go but how would he identify who killed the banker?

Personal Synopsis

This is the first episode for the Danger Man series and it is quite a foundation for how the show would eventually be known for. Money has been stolen, someone is killed , theres a woman in there somewhere and there will be an awesome punch-on with overly acted blows. This is a fun episode but it could have been a bigger story.
