Then, the detective discovers the dead man was Flood himself. Burke must figure out who, among a number of suspects, committed the crime. Written by Bill Koenig

He Loved Women
7 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The titular murder victim was a rich entrepreneur and studio mogul named Emery Flood, who apparently was so rich that most people didn't like him, know him, or miss him. Mr. Flood was a keeper of women and we meet four: Elizabeth Montgomery, a lovable lush who was given an exclusive contract, except she hasn't made a picture; instead, she was given a house and $500 per week (she hasn't met the man in the 5 years that she has been living there!).

Barrie Chase, a not-so-lovable lush, who resides in the beach house (apparently, she saw Mr. Flood annually); she can't stand Mr. Flood and wants to erect a monument to the person who killed him.

Dina Merrill, the kept-woman who is so starved for attention/affection that she has begun to pick up strangers in the park and invite them up to the apartment Mr. Flood keeps her in (this character garnered quite a bit of sympathy from me).

Ann Harding, (SPOILERS?)a woman who could have been Norma Desmond revisited.

Chase, Merrill, and Frederick Barry (Gene's son) are still among us.

The only Burke's Law that I can recall hearing: "Never drink martinis with beautiful suspects."
