In Grail and Platter Lew is still recovering from his interrogation at the hands of the Russians but finds that trouble is still right on his doorstep. Going in search of a crook/killer called Hans Dieter puts him out in the open like never before and very quickly a group of crooked businessmen from Detroit are on his tail and planning to kill him once and for all.
The key to the episode is an intelligence report that Burnett is desperate to get his hands on, it should give him some vital information on the money trail that seems to be at the heart of his death threats. Also another strong guest roster not least with the always excellent Frederick jaeger as the hitman Dieter.
Burnett: “Use it well, perhaps it will turn clean, I sold six people to get it… Mind you I’ve sold people before, eggs in a crate, some of them get smashed. But that’s always later when I’m somewhere else. It’s never been anything to do with me.”
