Priest Killing Has McNeil Uptight
7 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While "Crocker" is giving a lecture at a local girls Catholic High School, one of the priests is getting roughed up (and murdered) just outside the school.

It involves the hijacking of a truck delivering plumbing supplies, of all things. The scene of the crime leaves a couple of odd clues - sand that doesn't make sense and seed bags delivered from the far Northwest of the U.S.

The pressure is on the cops here, especially "Capt. Frank McNeil," since the head nun at the place is a former teacher of his. He gets a little antsy in here several times.

In the end, a teenage girl named "Lena" (Cynthia Avila) turns out to be a big help in solving the case.
