Storyline

A relatively severe earthquake causes a mess, including in Community General, where many people come given the state of their homes. Mark finds the crushing by a massive armoire of Martin Garfield - who had earlier mistrusted his much younger bride Ruth's fiancé - was staged after the quake, given the dust on his corpse. Mark finds Ruth with her studly 'jeweller' Henry in boxer-shorts, not aware of her prenuptial. At her advice he checks out Garfield's antiques business partner Stuart Westlake, who would be embezzling. He again points to Garfield's son-in-law, sculptor Rick Bennett, who is in gambling debt with a loan-shark and has a broken finger. Jack and Amanda tail a man who was snooping in Garfield's home, who goes to sell to dodgy Bobby Rebetta a lumpy gold bar, the reshaped murder weapon. Written by KGF Vissers
