Review by:
Emma Sturgess

Are the writers suffering a crisis of confidence, or a nostalgia attack? Either could explain the recent fondness for harking back to old cases and ancient contacts.

This week, the returnee is Jane’s old friend Jack, a magician fallen on hard times. He’s the rather lacklustre entertainment at the Golden Fox casino, where suspicion falls after an ex-employee is found dead. More importantly, he owes Jane $50.

At Jane’s behest, the team find themselves taking part in a robbery, but the real action is happening somewhere else: Cho, the most unlikely softie since TV records began, has bought roses for call girl-turned-informant, Summer.
