Slightly grimmer, still solid as always
26 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

When an art restorer who works at a gallery owned by Phyllis Avery, a personal friend of David 'Richard Diamond' Janssen, is shot he leaves a cryptic message before dying: 'Diamond H'. At first Janssen and police lieutenant Regis Toomey think the message is incomplete, but Janssen soon discovers the H stands for heroin, and that the art gallery might unknowingly be part of a heroin smuggling scheme. When Janssen pays a visit to the penthouse of rich widow May Ediss, who imported the latest art pieces the deceased was working on, he finds her in bed, weakened and drugged, before he gets knocked out cold...

Another great episode, that is a bit grimmer than most, in part because of the heroin angle, in part because of how far the smugglers will go to keep their business going, and because of the slightly downbeat ending. Janssen ('The Fugitive') is his solid self, altho his lines are not as snappy in this episode as in others. Toomey ('I Wouldn't Be In Your Shoes') was a regular in the earlier seasons and does well with the little he's given. This was Avery's 2nd of 3 appearances on this show and I enjoyed her, she's far from just a pretty face in this one. A solid episode!
