A foreign senator is murdered in the presence of his blind relative, Josetta. Rioting ensues due to a rumor that the American government was behind the killing, and secret agent John Drake is sent in. He quickly identifies the murderer with clues provided by Josetta. However, in order to get more positive proof, he needs the criminal to make an incriminating move. He concocts a plan to make the assassin believe Josetta can see in order to weaken his confidence and trick him into making a mistake. Written by
"Josetta" is one of the half-hour episodes from the first season of "Danger Man". It begins with a man being assassinated in his home and the only witness is a bit problematic. Josetta was there but she's blind! Drake (Patrick McGoohan) is brought in to help her identify the killer through his voice because many folks in her country blame the Americans for the murder and he needs to prove it was done by someone else. While he is able to figure out the killer quickly, he needs to be able to prove it--which might not be that easy--especially as some of the local police seem intent on keeping Drake out off the case--no matter how. Drake, naturally, isn't scared away and comes up with a novel plan--convince the killer that she CAN see! This third episode of "Danger Man" has a distinction, as it seems like the first episode of the series that actually worked fine in a half hour time slot. The first two just seemed very, very rushed. Overall, I have no complaints about "Josetta"--it was well-written and interesting throughout.
