Storyline

On the road traveling to meet an old girlfriend who wrote him a letter, Bart meets a young cowboy who tells him he's going to kill a man - the man who owns the gambling house where the girl now works. But when the cowboy winds up being the one killed instead, Bart is accused of killing him, and starts to wonder if he's not being played as a pawn in a game. Written by rbecker28

A Maverick Whodunit
29 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

Starts off as a slick poker scam in typical Maverick fashion, but quickly evolves into a whodunit. You may need a scorecard to keep up with the complications and dead bodies, still there's the ravishing Karen Booth to entertain the eye. And who better as a foil for the Mavericks than the smoothly sinister Gerald Mohr. In the charm department, he fits right in with the series emphasis on glib humor. Good thing the series emphasis was not on realism, because that early shot of the phony mountain backdrop is hard to ignore. Some foliage between the action and the backdrop might have helped. Anyway, the entry is mainly a matter of taste, but in my view, it doesn't make enough use of the series' particular strengths.
