Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Peter Falk guest stars as gangster Meyer Fine, a man who lives in mortal fear of sudden death. When a prominent young man commits suicide after losing heavily at Meyer's gambling house, a tough cop threatens to close Meyer down for good. To prevent this, Meyer murders the cop, only to incur the wrath of his fellow gangsters, who know they'll also suffer for the cop's death. Figuring he's a doomed man, Meyer wishes he could figure a way out of his dilemma -- a wish overheard by his loyal valet, John (Paul Hartman).
