The Missing Plates
28 February 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Thomas Banacek(George Peppard) investigates a strange case involving some security certificate plates that were somehow stolen from an elevator in motion! The guard protecting it was found unconscious, and is a suspect, but Banacek thinks him innocent. The plates belong to a successful seafood franchise fronted by "Cap'n" Jack Osburn(played by Andrew Duggan) whose daughter Erica(played by Jessica Walter) tags along with Thomas for 5%(and protect her father),potentially undercutting his standard 10% of the reward. Can he dodge her and solve this mystery himself? Interesting characters and premise here with the expected clever resolution.
