39 x 30 minute episodes

This 30-minute drama series starred John Ireland as John Hunter, a claims investigator for the Eastern Insurance Company, based in London.

Hunter was the insurance world’s equivalent of Sherlock Holmes and was responsible for tracking down fraudulent claims by “the cheaters” – covering everything from arson to double indemnity.

Diligent and honest, Hunter and his assistant, Walter Allen (Robert Ayres) were relentless in their pursuit of nasty people who were swindling his company at the ultimate expense of decent policy-holders.

Those who attempted crafty frauds and fiddles were quickly sussed and brought to justice.

Star John Ireland went on to play Jed Colby in Rawhide.
