Summary[edit | edit source]

When a woman is found murdered near a remote men’s social club, Jane must find a way to insinuate himself into the insular group to find the killer.

Recap[edit | edit source]

Teresa has an overnight date with agent Pike. A woman's body is found in the Houston National Forest, 120 miles away. Jane insists that they take an FBI helicopter to the crime scene. Jane and Lisbon arrive at the scene and meet an officer from the forest service. Two hikers found the body, a cellphone 10 feet away. The medical examiner says that her death is due to a broken neck. The officer somehow does not believe her death was caused by a fall. Jane inspects the body and notes that she smells of expensive perfume. The lack of socks indicates that the woman came to meet someone, not to hike. The ranger informs that there is a Foragers Club, for men only. He calls them and asked if anyone was missing from the club. They say no. Jane and Lisbon investigate the club and its members, including the Head of Security of the club.

Agent Cho doesn't have any luck finding out the identity of the woman, while Fischer discovers that someone matching her description is staying at a nearby hotel with her sister, a woman named Madison Price. Cho goes to investigate, while Lisbon interviews Peter Kilgallen, the majordomo of the club, he repeats what his boss says that the club if male-only and she wouldn't be associated with them.

Jane meets a member of the club, speaking "illegally" on a cellphone (the club has laws against cellphone use on the premises), and confirms out that the only women are the waitresses. He tells him that if the knows the right person he can get off on his criminal charge, the member doesn't believe him when Jane says he got away with murder.

Cho and Fischer interview the victims' sister and find out that their parents died early and after some time in foster care, the victim paid for her sister to go to boarding school. When asked where the money came from, she claimed that her sister had her own company working for rich people solving problems and that she was not in a relationship, issues with men because she was gay, further confused them to why she was at the club.

Jane and Lisbon are having lunch at the club when Jane mentions to Lisbon she should say hi to Agent Pike for him, while he is smelling the hair of the female staff. Jane tells her that in Madisons' last message to her sister she was in a cabin and since she was gay it couldn't have been a members cabin, leaving on the female waitstaff, where they meet her lover, who smells of the same shampoo. She is interviewed by Fischer who finds out that she worked at the club as an escort at a brothel on the premises. The owner, Russell, confirms that with the help of Kilgallen the started a brothel, the Fishing Camp, which eliminated the number of incidents and arrests that took place previously.

Jane, Lisbon, and Abbott investigate Madison personal cabin at the Fishing Camp and discover a golf pin the belongs to a pro-golfer she was sleeping with her. Just as they begin to question him, his lawyer Gregory Dyer interrupts them. He isn't a member but can live on the resort property. The concierge, Mr. Kilgallen is now missing and the team begins a search for him. After placing a BOLO and having no luck, Lisbon talks to Agent Pike about changing their dinner plans and he mentions using a satellite to find the missing Kilgallen. Fischer and Wylie track down a car and Abbott and Lisbon go to check it out, finding the dead concierge by a golf cart.
