Not quite right
25 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

This episode of 77 Sunset Strip has Jeff Spencer killing an escaping Don Barry who broke from prison and headed for Bailey&Spencer. Roger Smith who helped put him there is his target and the jewels which he stole were never recovered. Barry hid them from his accomplices.

Of course that reopens the old case and Smith and LAPD friend Byron Keith are working the clues again. For help insurance investigator Tom Drake brings in the daughter of the robbery victim Bunny Cooper for assistance.

I won't go any further but something is not quite right with the whole setup as Smith and the others continue the search.

Some plot holes, still not bad for the series.
