Featuring Steven Dunn as Sam Spade. Sam recounts his latest case to his secretary, Effie, as he goes into flashback mode to relive it. With a sizable reward in store for him, Sam goes on the job, and heads to a bank. Wendal Whizby is the banker, and former magician. The bank president wants to keep it quiet, but a purse snatcher has walked away with $53K.
Has Whizby’s uncle stolen the cash? Whizby is a reformed con-man and magician, and claims that he’s willing to pay the cash back himself if the man and money can’t be found.
Hitting the streets, Sam goes on the track of the missing relative. A clear trail is left for Sam to follow, but a dead end has him circling back to Wendal. The trail gets crazy as wierd characters spring up along the way.
The case isn’t all fun and games, Sam has found himself knocked out, and he wakes up in a burning building. It’s time to get tough, especially when a murder enters the picture. It could take beating the truth out of certain characters, but in the end a lighter tone for the show returns as Sam sets everything right.
None today, Keith manages to talk just a little longer than expected about some background on Same Spade. Then the Retrobots squeeze in a pitch on the new chat server.
