Storyline

After her ex-boyfriend, mobster Tony Galper, dies in an accident in her home, Vanessa turns to club owner Justin Prince to help her out. He disposes of the body for her but unknown to him, tabloid photographer Linwood Coben secretly photographed him getting rid of the body. He tells Prince he can have the negatives and prints for $250,000 and Prince agrees to pay him. They meet that evening but Prince has every intention of killing him, making it look like Coben committed suicide. Reviewing the crime scene, Colombo immediately has his doubts about the suicide. To solve Coben's murder however, he will also have to solve what happened to Galper. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Freddie the Messenger confronts Lt. Columbo while seated in his car, they have a short conversation, then he presents Columbo with his Mafia business card, but the printed title on the card is all wrong. It reads COPO TUTTI DE COPO which has no meaning. The correct and very common expression in the underworld is Capo di tutti Capi, which means Boss of all Bosses. See more »

Late Return To Form
14 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The "New Columbo" of the 1990s and into the 21st century have been a bit too whimsical at times but this story has much more edge to it. Columbo behaves more like an LA detective and the villains are shown to be more complex. The filming of the episode shows much more inventiveness than in recent episodes and the acting is first rate by all the cast. Falk gives an effective performance and conveys Columbo as being a little world weary - he's seen this all before but still loves his job too much. The makers of this episode have clearly tried to inject some energy into what was threatening to become a stale property. Overall, a refreshing return to form and a good finale for Columbo if this turns out to be the last ever episode.
