Crime on the docks
24 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A dock worker is killed in what the police are told - and they initially believe - was an accident. However, a friend of the dock worker who is a peddler hanging around the docks makes a pest of himself at the police station telling everyone that his friend wasn't killed by accident. They by now believe him because his friend was found with a bundle of cash on him. Kirby goes undercover at the docks and soon discovers a smuggling operation. Interesting that the peddler's friend was known to be a very kind and generous man but he also was on the take. John Doucette does a very good job as the heavy but I prefer him as a cop. In this episode, Kirby never takes his hat or trench coat off (he substitutes the trench coat for a jacket when he goes undercover) even when he's in his office, even though other characters do. I don't remember him hatless or coat-less in any of the episodes but perhaps he was. Not that it matters, but it is odd.
