A private detective, and former HPD officer, turns up dead. Following his trail, Five-O discovers the private detective was investigating whether a businessman's son-in-law was being faithful in his marriage. It turns out the son-in-law is up to his neck in a scheme to steal gold from the businessman, melt it and recast it and make it appear to be a treasure find. Things will turn more deadly before Five-O can crack the case. Written by

As previously noted in another goof, McGarrett was not only wrong in his conversion of the gold from troy pounds to kilos (he apparently used the conversion ratio for miles to kilometers), he overvalued the price of the gold. He said the gold was worth 1.2 million dollars for the 158 lbs. which would be about $540.00 per oz. At the time the show aired gold sold for about $110.00 per oz. See more
Either there's been a mistake or I am the victim of a terrible fraud.
