Jim is sent to France to help solve the murder of an unidentified Jersey resident. He turns out to have been Jack Moberley, a private eye, who was trailing eccentric lawyer Lionel Carteret on behalf of his family. Lionel has plans to marry a countess, whose house has been repossessed by the local casino, due to her late husband's gambling debts. When a gun is found in her bedroom it would seem that she killed Moberley, but there are other suspects, including Lionel and his family and the casino owner.Written by

[while working on a case in France, Jim happens to see Charlie Hungerford going into a hotel with an unknown woman]
I wonder what *he's* doing here?
Perhaps he's having a naughty weekend. It's always good to have some dirt on your in-laws, no?
Digging up dirt on Charlie Hungerford is as easy as finding garlic in your salad.

There is something about Prime Target that is a cut above. Maybe because it was co-written by Robert Holmes or the location shooting in France or just the standard of acting from the varied guest stars.
Inspector Chazottes calls Bergerac over to identify a dead body who might be a man from Jersey. Bergerac has no idea of the man with or without his wig. Bergerac also handily bumps into Charlie Hungerford who is with a wealthy widow who was once accused of killing her husband.
The dead man was a private investigator tailing the new girlfriend of Lionel Carteret, an inveterate gambler and from a wealthy and distinguished legal family in Jersey. The girlfriend is a Countess fallen into hard times because of her late husband's gambling debts and might be attracted to Lionel because of his wealth.
There is a nice interplay between Bergerac and Chazottes played by Nikolas Grace. I liked Bergerac wandering around Jersey looking for the owner of the toupee which turned out to be ghastly thing from Hong Kong. Charlie plays a handy role in stopping the villain.
