The Botticelli Diamond
22 November 2016 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

David 'Richard Diamond' Janssen received $500 and a note from a former client. All he has to do is take a suitcase out of deposit and return it to former client. Which is tough to do when the man is beaten to death by Christopher Dark ('Suddenly') and his men. Turns out the dead man smuggled some drawings by Botticelli into the States for Dark, but decided to use Janssen and the deposit box to blackmail Dark. Which obviously backfired. Ex-wife Dorothy Green ('The Big Heat') hires Janssen to look into her ex-husband's death, but Dark kidnaps the ex-wife in exchange for the suitcase. The exchange is planned at an abandoned wharf at night...

This episode is from the second season, when the series was still set in NYC, and noir-regular Regis Toomey ('The Big Sleep') made regular appearances as a police lieutenant, as he does here. The later seasons played out in LA, and were a bit sexier (due to a faceless but sexy phone-service operator named 'Sam'). Either way, a fun & fast-paced series worth checking out. Janssen ('The Fugitive') is good as the smooth but persistent Diamond, using voice-over narration to help push the plot forward. This particular episode doesn't really stand out among the series, but it does have some twists along the way, and a nice noir-looking finale on a wharf at night. A good amount of this series episodes can be found on youtube btw.
