Storyline

John Drake visits the tiny nation of San Pablo to investigate an apparent suicide. The victim, Winfield, was a US treasury representative with a reputation for spending lavishly on women and gambling. That reputation is debunked by, non other than, Winfield's wife, who also informs Drake that Winfield made mention of a big discovery just before disappearing. Drake is able to prove that Winfield was murdered and that the Minister of Police was complicit in his death. He takes his case to the Minister of Finance, only to discover that he too cannot be trusted. Written by Twenty Penguins

Good if a bit short
12 November 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

John Drake (Patrick McGoohan) is sent to the tiny (and fictional) country of San Paulo. This is because a US Treasury Department representative is dead and the government there insists it was a suicide--but some folks have doubts. In particular, the dead man's wife insists that the man the government describes is not at all like her husband and she insists it's some sort of conspiracy. And, just before her husband died, he mentioned that he had some BIG discovery! What is it? When Drake digs deeper, he discovers corruption in the government of San Paulo--so who can he trust? I could say more but don't want to spoil the plot twists (though the summary does a good job in this department!).

All in all, this is a very good episode of "Danger Man". Though, like most of my reviews on this show, it is too short. Fortunately, a few years later "Danger Man" would be extended to one-hour episodes and it was retitled "The Secret Agent".
