Raymond Brown has wives in Baltimore, Newark, Hartford, and Boston. His wealthiest wife is also the oldest, and she visits the other wives, killing each by lacing a drink with cyanide, so that Brown will be all hers. When Brown discovers her treachery, he threatens to tell the police, but she reminds him that he is a bigamist with a motive for the murders. Written by

Steve Gravers playing Lieutenant Storber must have influenced Peter Falk ("Just one more thing") as Columbo. In fact Steve would go on to play a police sergeant in the sixth episode of season one of Columbo titled 'Short Fuse' almost 8 years to the day later in 1972. See more
Mr. Brown arrives when the police are processing the crime scene and medical personnel are removing Mrs. Brown's body. When Mr. Brown goes for a drink, Lt.

Since they had apparently only just discovered the body, they wouldn't have had time to test the liquor for any poison, and the Scotch would have masked any odors. See more
