A Matter of trajectory

This episode of Burke's Law was clever in the way the solution suddenly dawned on Gene Barry.

While in Los Angeles in a deluxe hotel suite, the richest man in the world, one Nicholas Amenor (Ricardo Montalban) is talking to his chief accountant when a shot is fired through the window, killing the accountant and narrowly missing Amenor. Burke (Gene Barry) is called in, and begins going through the routine questions about the positions of people in the room, and what their actions were. Amenor starts getting pretty impatient with all this, as after all the shot was outside the building into and through the window. As a result he is not impressed by Burke and his men, and throughout the episode he keeps insisting on better results or else he will be talking to the Mayor and Governor about this slipshod performance.

The episode ends quite satisfactorily. Burke soon notices the obvious point that missed his attention while dealing with an egotistical target.
