Several scenes, McBride has Jessie (the dog) with him in various locations, yet the dog somehow seems to make it back to the office before he does. Example: when he goes to Simi Valley he even has Jessie with him in the man's home but when he returns to the office in La, Jessie is already there, helping Phil. See more »

To sympathetic for woman that married multiple men
14 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story starts off with a beautiful blond woman giving a man a ride to his house. She flirts with him and drops him off.

Later she is murdered in her car and the young man is blamed. Her pocket book is found in his house and other things seem to make him look guilty.

McBride represents the young man for a friend of his that works with the man and says there is no way he can murder someone.

McBride and his crew find out 1. The husband of the dead woman is rich and does not seem sad about her death. He is also a womanizer. 2. They find out she has a hotel room in another state and is also married to someone from the mob who is not short of money either. 3. They find out she is married to a third man and is leaving the country with a new wig and passport. 4. She also bought a condo with husbands money who did not know about it.

While McBride is putting these things together and brings up the case in court. He brings about sympathy for the poor murdered woman who was put in different foster homes when she was young and would do anything a man wanted her too.

When you see her in the car the first time with the man she is giving a ride home she is not a man pleaser. She is a man user and uses their money and flirts to get what she wants and offers some sort of service. She married rich men and travels back and forth to different husbands.

So she gets murdered but the sympathy McBride tries to get her that she was adopted, tried to please men is unwarranted.

PS The series is not bad but there is constant music in the background to make the story interesting, it is repetitive and annoying.
