Later, the purse is returned with all the contents intact along with a candy heart that says "I Love You", and the thief winds up in the morgue as a murder victim. Mac consults his colleague Dr. Marion Voight who tells him that Sally's admirer is most likely someone already in her life. The clues point to various suspects, and Sally and Mac are both threatened separately. Mac struggles to make sense out of the bizarre events before someone else ends up dead. Written by Anonymous

Who's doing the stalking?
1 May 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

It can happen even to the police commissioner's wife. Susan Saint James gets her purse snatched and of course the case gets top priority. Well if you can't get that being the commissioner's wife, what's the sense?

But later the purse is returned and Saint James starts getting strange phone calls and presents. And the thief is found brutally murdered.

So in the daily life of Sally McMillan who is it that she runs into that might have let a secret crush get out of hand?

A nice cast of interesting and familiar players who've done some villainous parts in their day is assembled for this show. Helping Rock Hudson to solve this case is department psychiatrist Sheree North.

Absolutely no clues are given in the casting because of who these people are. Don't worry in the end both McMillans are safe.

This one is done with some real, almost Hitchcockian style.
