When prosecutor Annette Rayburn, a real bulldog bitch, takes on Logan Investment, not only the board members who face serious litigation have reason to panic, one even disappears. Among the many worried clients is Jessica, who bought a few shares in a mutual fund for a 10 year-old relative. To her utter surprise she finds herself subpoenaed and threatened with contempt of court charges unless she confesses a conversation she never had, or rather only held the horn 8 silent seconds. When she finds whom the call from Logan was really for, it turns out to be a murder site... Written by KGF Vissers

Starring the great L*a*r*r*y L*i*n*v*i*l*l*e
21 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love M*A*S*H and it was great to see Larry Linville (who played Frank Burns in M*A*S*H) featuring as Paige Corbin, a senior corporate officer fearing for his life, kind of adopting the Frank Burns persona. This episode is set in New York City, and Jessica is in her element as always in the Big Apple. Also featuring in this episode is the beautiful Janel Moloney, who plays Maria Corbin, the estranged daughter of Paige.

One thing I noticed was when Jessica used the phrase "searched the newspaper on internet" instead of "on the internet". I guess the way "internet" was referred to in 1996 was quite fascinating. Also there was no Google back then. Also the cell phones were a bit large back then, as depicted in this episode.

One line I loved...when Jessica was a witness in the grand jury, she commented that just because she owned government bonds, it didn't mean she knew the President of the USA. This episode was screened in 1996, and no way in the world would the writers have suspected that 20 years later Donald Trump would win the Electoral College but not the popular vote.

The ending was a major twist and I never saw it coming. Quite remarkable, and kudos to the writing team.

But...I was rather bemused that actress Dree Lange was "Female Sergeant". I don't personally know anyone whose first name is Female, but maybe I'm missing something. Angela Lansbury isn't credited as "Female Crime Writing Author" by the way.
