In fact, he says "Where would I get money like that [meaning $80,000]?" Now this business with Duke, which is very shaky, as Mc Garrett demonstrates when he has a brainstorm and basically figures out what is really happening, is designed to deflect investigation from Chris Lahani (George Chakiris), assistant to Manicote, who was the one passing the information from Resko's letter via Runny Grose (Richard Morrison), a low-level stoolie working for Manoa.
Mc Garrett's father John was a plumber whose business address was 4024 Radford Avenue, Los Angeles, and his mother, the former Doris Callahan, was from Boston.Duke, who has been liaising with Five-O, at least with the name of "Duke", only for some shows in the previous season, gets the finger pointed at him as the one who leaked the information. Instead, he is dragged into some mess of financial impropriety to do with dealings in Sand 'n Surf Condominiums Inc., where he is alleged to have invested $80,000 (400 shares at $200 each) three years before when the company was set up.Dividends from this investment were received by Duke who deposited them in an account with the Outer Islands Federal Bank and then transferred the money to another account in the specific amount of $19,200 on August 11, 1972.There are questions about where Duke would have gotten the $80,000 which he invested with Sand 'n Surf.He says that he took out a second mortgage on his house a couple of years before to help his niece set up a business, but never specifically says that the amount was $80,000.After Five-O and Manicote's office investigate each other's team, with the result that Duke is the most likely suspect, Manicote tells Mc Garrett that he has never had such a strong case. He cannot prove a connection between Bryce-Halsey and Duke (i.e., they gave him money) because the company's information is hidden behind privacy information in Switzerland.
Duke seemingly did get a lot of money to invest, but it's never clearly revealed where this money came from.
And where is the evidence that Duke passed the information from Resko's letter along to Manoa somehow?
In fact, the whole business about making Lahani a plant in the DA's office and then setting up a frame for Duke ("a key officer") three years in advance of minor waves being made with Manoa seems like overkill.
There are good things about this episode, but the script (by Jerome Coopersmith! At the beginning, local criminal kingpin Piro Manoa (Michael Ansara), who Five-O have been after for six or seven years, knocks off his old friend Johnny Resko (Harry Williams).
Two days later, Resko has some of his pals send a "voice from the dead" letter to Mc Garrett which tells of three things that can be used against Manoa, connected with the 1968 murder of Anna Royoto: 1) the gun used to kill her, now in the safe at Resko's apartment; 2) a tape, in the attic of Resko's brother's beach house, where Royoto begs Manoa not to kill her over $60,000 she owed him; and the name of a witness to the murder, Sylvia Chang, who was hiding in the next room when the murder took place.
It seems that Miss Simpson (Laraine Stephens), the very sexy but bitchy accountant who detests Manoa, is a lot more in charge of things than Manoa himself. ), that she only audits his finances twice a year, she obviously has her finger in more pies than this.
