The Baron Episode 3: Something for a Rainy Day

A crook has just been released from prison but not without sinister reasoning. This unsavory fellow has a treasure that he believes will set him and his daughter for life. The treasure is a prized Aztec mask along with other Aztec artifacts. Mannering is working for a crooked insurance agent to retrieve the lost/stolen aztec mask for the company but it isn’t just the insurance agency that wants the mask.  Mannering has  more to deal with when the daughter of the crook is used as bait to get the Aztec mask from the thief. It may take some trickery to get the treasures back in the right hands.

Personal Synopsis

This episodes starts off at the Wormwood Scrubs Prison which in real life has held some famous criminals and has been the location for a few television shows and movies. One could hope for Michael Gwynn’s character to win, since his persona garners up the sympathy of the viewer. Furthermore the other crook played by Patrick Allen causes me to despise him and his quest. All in all a good episode with an interesting twist of the crooked insurance lady.
