Storyline

The body of a man is discovered in his car in his garage, apparently a result of suicide. As a result of Quincy's investigation, it is revealed that this was not a suicide, but a homicide meant to look like a suicide. Further investigation by Quincy leads him into a quagmire of union forces, mob bosses, and illegal immigrants - many with possible motives for murder. Written by Beeracuda

Not among the series' finer moments
6 April 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode begins with a lady finding her fiancé dead--the apparent victim of suicide. The body was found in a garage--with a hose leading from the exhaust into the car--an apparent carbon monoxide victim. But, when Quincy and Sam autopsy the body, the carbon monoxide saturation is too strong to have come from that car in that garage. So, Quincy decides to investigate--to talk with this dead young lawyer's friends within a migrant worker's union. This leads to the actual cause of the man's death--and he was apparently killed somewhere else and later placed in his car.

This is only a fair episode of "Quincy". There were two problems with the show--it was a bit preachy when it comes to the immigrants and the show ended with a 'Perry Mason moment'--where the murderer confesses to the crime even though there is no concrete proof that they did it! This was also the problem with the previous episode. While a good show, occasionally it relied on such silly theatrics.
