"Cruise To Nowhere"
DEAD MAN'S HAND IS PLAYED OUT WHEN HIGH-ROLLING GAMBLER IS FISHED OUT OF RIVER -- When the body of a former school chancellor is fished out of the Hudson River, Detectives Goren (Vincent D'Onofrio) and Eames (Kathryn Erbe) find out that he was a high roller on a casino boat off the New York coast. They soon zero in on Joey (guest star Lou Taylor Pucci), a talented but arrogant young gambler who was owed $500,000 by the victim. But the police also cannot ignore the dead man's resentful brother-in-law Phil, (guest star John Pankow) when they discover that he not only raised Joey, but taught him poker and intentionally placed him on the ship on the fateful night. Jamey Sheridan and Courtney B. Vance also star.
