1946- Whilst working for MI5 Foyle investigates the murder of a professor, William Knowles, who had been a translator at the Nuremberg war trials. In his pocket is the address of American oil tycoon Clayton Del Mar but Del Mar denies knowing the dead man. Foyle learns not only that Del Mar was recently visited by a high ranking Russian but that Knowles had photographs of German businessmen anxious to trade with Russia for its oil. He travels to Nuremberg but finds another corpse, a former Nazi factory owner who had dealings with Knowles. Meanwhile Sam goes undercover as companion to Del Mar's dying father, a Nazi sympathizer, but puts herself in danger as Foyle discovers evidence of shady dealings by Del Mar dating from the middle of the war.Written by

This episode is loaded with spy versus spy implications. It involves a man who has the skills to negotiate for Iranian oil. He is an evil man who is taking over his father's petroleum business, but who has no sense of morality. He is willing to step on anyone who gets in his way. His father (actually, the man who played Frazier Crane's father on that show) is an invalid and knows what his son is doing. In his own day he probably left a few bodies scattered around. Sam and her new husband aren't seeing eye to eye on the rights of women (though it is exacerbated by her pregnancy). She finds her husband in the arms of a female constituent who has asked for help and runs of in a huff. He was merely consoling her. She then takes a job, spying on the oil guy be reading to his father and then snooping around. At times it's hard to know the good guys from the bad. Foyle has become a pain in the ass of the leader of the investigative group he is working for. Of course, he will land on his feet, but it isn't always that's simple.
