Tense and exciting.
18 May 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Aside from the fact that I was able to guess who the assassin was, it's still a dandy episode--the sort that the program did best. There is no Quincy standing on his soapbox whining about the social issue of the week but a serious crime investigation--the sort of thing the show had emphasized early in the series.

The show begins with an explosion--and an unknown man is killed. In fact, there's barely any of the guy left and the only way they can identify him is from a tattoo! However, Quincy finds something else in the explosion that makes him and Monahan stop in their tracks--the remains of a note that appears to mean that the dead man was involved in some sort of upcoming assassination! So, they need to try to discover who the target is and where before it's too late. The trail leads to a couple politicians--a senator (Fritz Weaver) and his political nemesis, a governor (William Prince). Which of the two, if either, is the target? And, what sort of shady deals are they involved in? Quincy, of course, end up in the middle of it--along with a shifty assistant to the Governor (John Ireland) and an annoying reporter (Corinne Conley).

Tense. That's what makes this a good one. Well written and enjoyable throughout.
