More talky than usual.

On some unnamed Caribbean island*, two British agents have been tortured and killed. Drake's job is to determine if they divulged any information before they died as well as to protect another agent who is still living--an agent who doesn't realize that they are in danger. When Drake arrives in the country, he's assisted by a local policeman--a guy who seems a bit difficult to trust. The trail leads not only to the surviving agent but his wife. Who's on Drake's team and who isn't?

"A Man to Be Trusted" is one of the talkier episodes of "Secret Agent". While there is some action, much of the time, there is just lots of talking. Overall, a very subdued episode--even with the voodoo angle. Okay, but not much more.

*While the exact island is uncertain, it sure seemed a bit like Haiti (although folks did not speak French) with the voodoo subplot.
