Chief Arnold Nail
Mayor Kenyon Bagshaw
Ron Crosswhite
Officer Tom Rowley
CHP Officer


Angelino documentary maker Amber Sutherland is shot at home while turning a movie to promote Crane Creek mayor Kenyon Bagshaw's national political ambition. The local police suspects Ron Crosswhite, whom she interviewed the previous evening and probably got away with shooting his wife, city clerk Ginger (31), because officer Tom Rowley clumsily ruined the crucial video recording. While grudgingly reporting to pay a traffic fine, Jane is taken hostage by Crowley with other people in city hall to demand immunity and his wife's real killer being found. After the CBI director, politically influenced by Bagshaw, first gives the case to police chief Arnold Nail and then returns it go Lisbon, Rowley tries to shoot Crowley but only wounds another hostage. Jane gets Crowley to see sense and sets a trap for the double murderer. Written by KGF Vissers
