Everyone is a suspect in this episode
17 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hold on to your hats in this mystery as we get one of those stories where everyone of the guest cast was a suspect in this show. It will not be until Perry assembles the entire cast that one person is still standing in the suspect area that we know the true murderer.

Maxine Lindsey is a young art student that attends an unveiling of Gauguin painting aboard a yacht owned by the millionaire, Otto Olney. Colin Durant, a teacher of Maxine, tells her that the painting is a fake. When Maxine spreads the word, Otto is not amused.

When a young artist named Goring Gilbert advises that he did paint a Gauguin painting it becomes apparent that something is afoot. Not too much longer Colin Durant is found dead in Maxine's apartment and evidence points to Maxine as being the murderer. Perry will defend Maxine in court against charges from Hamilton Burger's office.

It will be away from the courtroom as Perry asks Hamilton Burger to attend a meeting aboard the yacht. There Perry will quiz each cast member until only one is left standing. A different ending from the norm but held the viewers interest till the very end. Good show.

Note- Nice to see Ray Collins back after an extending absents.
