Synopsis
In 1940, CW Briggs is the top insurance investigator in New York--or so he keeps telling the firm's new efficiency expert, Betty Ann Fitzgerald. Briggs prides himself on being able to crack any insurance caper by getting into the mind of the thief, but now, thanks to the hypnotic powers of the Jade Scorpion, the mind of a thief is getting into Briggs.
