Boston tycoon, Bennett Kimball, dies from a lingering disease. Ruth Walton hires the team because he promised her children's foundation his entire fortune. However his Harvard lawyer, Peter Blanchard, sabotaged the new will to remain the sole executer and real beneficiary. Ruth's lawyer, Tara Carlisle, insists on tagging along with Nathan, but is too naive for his kind of work. They play hardball to get at Blanchard via his jailed former partner P J Orson, rightly suspected of mob connections. Kimball and Ruth's own secret pasts complicate things considerably, yet hold the key to the fortune. Written by

When presenting the background of Georgia Gilbert, Hardison presents a birth certificate with the words, "State of Massachusetts, Office of the County Clerk" on the top of it. Such a document would not exist. The name of the entity is "The Commonwealth of Massachusetts." Birth records are kept with the local municipality where the birth took place, not the county. The county system in the Commonwealth was never the same as in the rest of the United States and what's more, has largely been abolished. Thus, either in 1960 when the character is portrayed as being born or in the present, the document would read: "Commonwealth of Massachusetts," and then identify the name of the city or town.
