Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Working on behalf of Deputy DA Kimble, whom he has never met, Jim (James Garner) poses as a newspaper publisher to find out if the weekly poker game at an exclusive men's club is "fixed." What the detective doesn't know until after the game is that Kimble couldn't have been the one who hired him since Kimble has was murdered nearly three months ago. Assistant DA Kate Doyle (Blair Brown) asks Jim to stay on the case to expose both the crooked game and the killer...and, incidentally, to prove that the late Mr. Kimble was connected with the Mob. This is the only Rockford Files episode directed by series star James Garner.
