The Arabian
27 July 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

The episode might had been inspired by the notorious kidnapping of the famous horse Shergar in Britain in 1983. However this is just a daft and convoluted story.

A thoroughbred horse has to be put down by the vet a few days before it is due to be auctioned for $8 million. The owner is a former actress fallen on hard times. Her gigolo boyfriend has a plan to switch the horse with a similar looking sibling which the actress does not recognise that it is not her horse. The bad guys kill the vet and then hold the horse for ransom for $2 million made payable by the insurance company.

However as the vet said before he died, if the horse dies the insurance payout would be $4 million so what the heck is the boyfriend doing with this daft plan where several people end up dead? The boyfriend looks like a guy who just walked out of some early 1980s LA porn movie, not a criminal mastermind.

Jess teams up with a beautiful insurance investigator Elizabeth Morgan who seems to be more on the ball than Street Hawk and the police department.
