The team's mission is to locate the wristwatch of an undercover Federal Agent who went to get evidence against a gambling lord. It seems like the wristwatch is a camera and the agent may have photographed some evidence against the gambling lord and they were unaware of it when they killed him. Jim poses as a pool shark because the gambling lord is a major pool player. And he recruits Mimi King the ex of the lord's lieutenant who left her high and dry after she was arrested.
