Now he wants to have the Zoo Gang help him get it out of the wreckage.  When the treasure is found, the french customs officers are right there to collect out of the hands of the Zoo Gang.  It is suspicious that the Zoo Gang’s whereabouts are known at every step of the investigation. They must find the mole and get back the twisted cross.


Personal Synopsis

The final episode of the Zoo Gang strings together a story line that connects with the gangs past. World War II still has lingering shadows that affect the emotions of those who lived through it and revenge is still on peoples minds. This story follows a ruby brooch made by the nazis for Eva Braun. On land and sea this episode is full of excitement and danger , fitting for the last episode of a good series.
