A private investigator working an adultery case stumbles on a murder. Five $20 bills with two zeroes written on them provide the clues.

description is wrong- It is about a mob boss's son who is pulled over and arrested for drug possession and the dilemma of an honest judge when he is going to be removed from his post by a corrupt senator if he does not throw the case out. Ending less than satisfying... feels like they ran out of time as the end feels like a whole other chapter in the story.

I agree with Paul on his overall assessment. A mobster tries to fix his son's serious drug case. The only way to succeed is to force a honest judge to betray his ethics. The set up of the story is interesting. A good story. The ending was truly disappointing. You would think the writer could have come up with anything better than he or she did.

I thought the ending was really good. A nice realistic albeit sad twist. Cbsrmt usually wraps it all up with some cutesy phrase and perfect happy ending, this was a really nice change of pace. Well written/paced throughout

This is actually "THE SAFE JUDGE", not 'Double Zero' as the title states. An honest judge who can't be bought finds himself facing a trial that can either make or break his career, but in order to keep his job, he must accept the offered bribe. - I don't usually care for these sorts of trial-cop episodes, but this one was enjoyable and kept my interest all the way through. I found the ending a little odd, as all the way through we are led to believe the daughter knew the accused from the get go, but then she acts like she has no idea who he is to prove her point.
