|Plot Summary of One-Armed Bandit|
Four people are murdered during the apparent robbery of a Las Vegas convenience store. The killer - a one-armed man -is caught on the store's security tapes. However, as the investigation progresses, the police began to doubt that robbery was the true motive. It appears more likely that the incident was actually a hit on one of the victims; but which one? In order to find the answer, the detectives must find the killer dubbed the "one-armed bandit."
