Flash criminal Johnny Lyons and his two associates Budd and Clarke are acquitted on four charges of robbery, thanks to Lyons' smooth-talking brief. Recalling that Lyons once maimed a good friend of Regan's, Maynon puts Regan on the case, giving him carte blanche to reel Lyons in. Regan uses his chess expertise to sow the seeds of doubt between Clarke and Budd in order to get Lyons, and that includes a little kidnapping. Written by
