Storyline

The right hand of the Calida casino's boss, James Meier, is found just on the Californian side of Nevada's border, marked '43' like the mob did to thieves. Patrick promptly proves he can win by memorizing cards, and spots the cheating dealer, Alexandra, and her accomplice. He helps CBI find and disentangles her. The Meier family's dirty links with several suspects, from the manager to whale Cal Trask, then sets his trap. Written by KGF Vissers
