Television's Spenser For Hire Robert Urich takes Robert Parker's Boston based laconic private eye to the more leisurely format of a made for TV movie in Pake Kings And Princes. I think the films always work better than the TV series format no matter how good the series is. We even get Avery Brooks returning as Hawk in this one.
Urich gets hired by Sarah Silverman psychologist whom he has a past with to investigate the death of a TV reporter who was her client. The late client was a good journalist he was of Colombian descent and was investigating the rumors of heavy drug trafficking in a small Massachusetts town where Columbians had settled. But this man was one raging sex addict and the fact he was castrated during the murder does suggest there was a sex angle in this as well.
Urich and Silverman go to Wheaton where they get even less than usual cooperation from law enforcement. The fact that a Columbian drug lord has the biggest house in town seems to indicate what the local industry is.
The solution and yet not what you think. Pale Kings And Princes is a nicely done made for TV film and also Bob Urich's last appearance as Spenser.
