The Adventurer Season 1 Episode 19: Mr Calloway Is a Very Cautious Man

Mr Parminter gets an anonymous phone call telling him to be at the wharf and check a package labelled from Gene Bradley. What he discovers calls in to question everything he knew about Bradley. Bradley is more clever than to get caught, so instead he deliberately offers himself to be arrested in order to learn the truth about a Mr. Calloway but he could be risking a fat jail sentence if he fails. He better expose the ring of criminals before the heavy handed justice system takes him down.

Personal Synopsis

Weapons dealers are easy antagonists to add to the series. This Barry Morse directed episode has an air of charm, even with its dark shady shadowy figures hustling guns to countries ripe with revolution.  We follow this twist in the story as Bradley goes undercover to uncover the elusive Mr. Calloway and his criminal deeds. Actually a great episode to watch and one of three episodes directed by Mr. Parminter himself Barry Morse.
