Storyline

Hayden Danziger is on a cruise with his older but much, much richer wife Sylvia. Rosanna Wells is on the same ship, as its singer. Rosanna and Hayden were recently lovers, after which Rosanna began blackmailing Hayden; so, having decided to kill her, he has planned the perfect crime - or so it seems, since Lt. Columbo is cruising on that very same ship and the captain has asked for his help. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Quotes

Lt. Columbo: Saxophone repair, lead sheets, piano tuning, hotel, restaurant... All these receipts have one thing in common. They represent tax deductions, with one single exception - the receipt for the gun. He can't deduct that. He can deduct all these, so we know why he saved these. I'll tell ya, sir, for the life of me I can't understand why he saved this one.

Best of all Columbo's
27 October 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is the best Columbo. The mystery is great, and the way Columbo figures it out and befriends Mr. Danziger is perfect. Danziger does not know whether to like Columbo, or hate him. The pace of this episode is perfect, it rolls along just like a cruise. The ship itself is also a wonderful backdrop for the episode. No question, the best episode of the best show ever produced!
