A typically well mounted Kraft suspense episode, nicely shot and well acted, it deals with gangsters and good guys at odds with one another in what appears to be a thinly disguised Reno. Macdonald Carey plays a seemingly honest casino owner with issues ,--but what are they? Leslie Nielsen is a former DA who's trying to get to the bottom of things, never easy to do in a city whose primary business is gambling and where personal loyalties often interfere with professional conduct.

The story has many twists and turns, a little romance, some tough stuff, some nice glimpses into the life in a city where gambling is legal. There are some good small character part for good actors, notably Michael Pate; and the leading players are both outstanding. That the ending is more tragic and therefore dramatic rather than, as one might have guessed, melodramatic, lends this episode a touch of clause. The color is beautiful, much better than the brighter hues used in color shows from a few years later.

It's an above average episode that should hold the interest of most viewers.
