Detectives Cerreta and Logan investigate what appears to be the mugging of a pregnant woman, Amy Newhouse. She was working late at a law office and didn't leave until after one in the morning. She loses the baby and the initial suspect is her boyfriend Chris Baylor but when they learn that the baby's father is her boss David Alcott, who was also working late that night, they shift their investigation to him. He denies fathering the child but Amy has the evidence to get him to admit they had an affair. She was also blackmailing Alcott and he is arrested. ADA Robinette finds a major hole in the victim's story and they soon realize there's a major scam going on. Written by garykmcd

Two coldblooded con artists
12 August 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

After working late Molly Price is assaulted and loses her baby she was carrying as a result. Chris Noth and Paul Sorvino at first work on the theory that her philandering boss lawyer Nicholas Surovy was the one who impregnated her and then tried to kill the kid. Easy to buy because Surovy is not one of God's noblest creatures.

But later it was those loose details that Columbo always harps on that slowly tear apart their story. In fact the conduct of Price and her "former" boyfriend Reed Diamond now a cabdriver and formerly a lawyer disbarred in his native Wisconsin is called into question.

Both of them truly deserve each other, a pair of real snakes, two coldblooded con artists.

Can't say any more, you have to see this for yourselves.
