Average, at Best
25 March 2013 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

An average episode, at best. Pete investigates the sudden death of a wealthy woman. The tracks lead to her yacht and some very uncooperative crew men.

As usual, the atmosphere is strongly noirish and producer Edwards gets the most out of just a couple of sets. But its a pedestrian solution to a not very involving case, maybe most memorable for the meekly submissive son (Edwards) and Otto Waldis as the captain, a familiar face who menaced a thousand GI's during WWII as one of Hollywood's most familiar Nazis. At least the fights are well choreographed, if not very convincing.

All in all, the series usually did better.
