The Halloween mask killer
13 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A man is shot by a killer in a Halloween mask; soon there is a second murder. A bellboy, Eddie, at McGraw's hotel comes to McGraw asking for his advice. It seems Eddie's girlfriend, Sue, was a witness to the second murder and saw the killer just for a second when he removed his mask, but she doubts that she could actually identify him. McGraw tells them to go to the police but they don't want to do this because then the killer would think that Sue could identify him. But the killer already thinks this and knows where Sue lives. Soon after the visit to McGraw, a woman is shot and killed going into Sue's apartment. It comes out that it was Sue who was killed and before leaving town, McGraw goes to the cemetery to pay his respects. There he sees Sue driving by in a car. He tells Eddie that he is sticking around because "I always get curious when I see someone driving away from their own funeral." McGraw learns that the two earlier murder victims were both jurors at a trial of a man later executed for murder. This is a pretty tense episode with a nice bit of detective work on McGraw's part. The supporting cast, especially Willis Bouchey as Lt. Stark is good. Another enjoyable episode.
