Colonel Rodriguez, the Chief of Police on an island nation, takes an American journalist into custody as a scapegoat for his country's problems. The journalist's wife is contacted about a letter that could incriminate Rodriguez and release her husband. John Drake sets out to get the evidence, but after several setbacks, he must bluff his way into securing the journalist's freedom. Written by
Colonel Rodriguez arrests an American journalist on trumped up charges of espionage. Why? Because such a scapegoat will distract the people from how bad they have it in this dictatorship. When the journalist's wife thinks she has evidence that could incriminate the Colonel, it's up to Drake to make sure the right people get this information--which won't be very easy, as the Colonel is a tricky guy. So, it's up to Drake to be even trickier! Additionally, what is this information and who has it? This was a decent episode but it helps that it ended well. It also helped that Rodriguez was a pretty nasty villain. Not among the very best episodes of the series but overall well worth your time.
