Mason Adams plays seething son Michael Emerson, whose wealthy parents are killed in an auto accident by a criminal who gets a light sentence from the judge. Emerson, who doesn't lack money, yearns for satisfaction -- the chance to get back at those he felt betrayed him with justice. Emerson turns to two safecrackers -- as well as a replicas of entire bank vaults -- to extract his financial revenge. Adams voice and mannerisms play well with Jackson Becks' safecracker gravelly baritone. Beck's voice always adds a dash of animation to a production, not surprisingly since he voiced the Bluto character in the old Popeye cartoons. The plot is kinda far-fetched but well worth a listen.
