Kidnap party

This topic about kidnapping has not been told yet in this series. The son of a wealthy man is abducted and of course a ransom is asked by the ones who grabbed the youngster. As the plot line above said, the father borrows the dol to a friend of his - played here by Paul Stewart. It seems rather the usual scheme, but beware. If you follow with great attention each episode of ASPHALT JUNGLE TV show, you have noticed that every one of them let us be surprised in the second part. This one makes no exception. Just after the ransom has been delivered, all the gang is caught and placed under custody, but the suit case supposed to contain the bullion is full of clothes...The borrowed dol is missing. What's next? Suspicion is everywhere between cops, young man's family, officials, every one. Commissionner is on the spot, for real. A set up? Why, against who? One more crooked cop affair?
