In Laws of Fortune Crowe and Burnett call upon an old flame of Crowe’s, Captain Jane Ashley a former accountant now in the army in order to try and make some sense of the files they now hold. When she is murdered by Quentin both Crowe and Lew realise the stakes have risen considerably higher. Meanwhile plans are under way to sell off Burnett’s business at half its real value, Lew and Crowe (helped by Turtle) decide to break into Lew’s former offices to take a proper look at some secret accounts. Haven’t spent some time examining the files Lew finally puts two and two together and realises that Preston is behind the death attempts. A 300,000 pound embezzlement that was about to be discovered by Burnett, but is Preston also part of a set up designed to throw Lew further off the scent?
The action is gearing up for the big finish in this penultimate episode, you think that Lew has discovered exactly what it is going on before the ending turns the whole thing around again. The net is closing in though and Quentin finally gets his just desserts thanks to Crowe. There is also a nice guest appearance from Jan Francis as Crowe’s old army flame. She isn’t in it for long though before being “dealt with” by Quentin.
