Good Story.

A itenerate gambler schemes to pay off his debt by enlisting his bookie's help to murder his brother and aunt to inherit a fortune.'

This is one of my all-time faves. Lloyd Battista and Tony Roberts have great chemistry and I wish they had been in more episodes together. I like the cynical twist and there's a lot of dark humor here. Good job from all.

Aha, "Shark Bait" is a very enjoyable episode, very clever writing and entertaining dialogue from our diabolical protagonist such as, "I have him in reserve as a second line suspect". Great little mystery tied up very neatly at the end.
