Entertaining murder mystery episode
27 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

To Kill in Plain Sight begins with a lookout for an assassin receiving a package at his hotel room which explodes killing him instantly. Quincy (Jack Klugman) is called to the scene and later conducts the autopsy, but there is very little to go on because the body was so damaged in the explosion. He does find evidence of a distinct tattoo and a note in the room which seems to indicate that a politician will be assassinated at a governors convention which is about to begin. To prevent this from happening, Quincy and the police must figure out who the victim was working for as well as the intended target while also having to deal with a media frenzy.

This is a good murder mystery episode which I found to be interesting and entertaining. My only criticisms are that I was able to figure out the culprit by the middle of the episode and I also found it pretty unrealistic that they continued with this convention when there was already one murder and another politician was being targeted. I doubt there was anything on the agenda worth risking lives for and the police would have normally shut it down, but not Lt. Monahan (Garry Walberg) and crew.

Aside from these two minor issues, this is a pretty compelling Season 6 entry which I did enjoy as there was a crime and an investigation featured along with several suspects. This is the type of Quincy episode that I thoroughly enjoy as I think most other fans do and I highly recommend viewing!
