A rich man comes to the protectors asking them to help him disappear from society to settle a bet with another man. Harry wants more time to decide whether he wants to do it or not but Contessa is more than willing to accept the challenge. But the man has questionable mental stability and could be dangerous however Contessa is not aware of that. Harry and Paul must get to her before the crazy man gets to her.
An episode of deception by testing the detectives ability to work against themselves. Derren Nesbitt is great as the rich man who decides to trick the Protectors. A decent episode but not one of the strongest. This turns into a test of Harry’s and Paul’s skill at knowing exactly what Contessa would do.
