Okay, But A Bit On The Dry Side
16 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Annie Ming Littleton is shopping in Chinatown with her two little kids when she recognizes someone, goes into hysterics yelling and chasing the guy. This is reminiscent of the 1976 film "Marathon Man" when Holocaust victims recognized an old Nazi on the streets of New York and yelled out, as this woman did. In this case, the woman recognized a man called "the butcher" who massacred people in the student uprising of 1989 in Tiananmen Square in Beijing.

Anyway, the man she was pursuing eludes her, gets in a car but the driver advises him to go back and do something about that because the woman recognized him. He does, killing her with two shots in the back.

That dramatic opening is really the only riveting part of this episode, which is sub-par only because it has limited appeal. It's really a story about smuggling Chinese artifacts and the dealings with that, much of which will bore most listeners. I wasn't bored, but most episodes are little more edgy than this one.
