One of the best episodes with Helen Shaver
16 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

as Columbo's nemesis. She portrays a realtor in Beverly Hills, and there are the usual amusing scenes with Columbo visiting her at work, ogling the mansions, asking what prices they go for. This Columbo episode as well as the older one with Janet Leigh ("The Forgotten Lady") are quite interesting as you see some of the old L.A. architecture, mansions and so forth.

Roscoe Lee Brown portrays Shaver's psychiatrist. As Columbo is asking him questions as to why someone would commit murder, he says; ..."sometimes it is revenge; I have been wronged, so now am entitled to do wrong"... Describing the thought patterns of a murderer.

I will not give away the ending. Suffice it to say, you will enjoy this episode. 9/10
