Storyline

A loony sculptor claims her grandfather wasn't buried in his grave at all. Turns out he was ("When we put them down there, they stay down", says a minor character), but there is also evidence that $4.3 million in embezzled money is -- or was -- down there too. When Pete and Mac take up the case and find the money hijacked from a computer account, they also come upon a shadowy killer who is intent on making the sculptor look crazy or dead and take them with her. Written by Peter Harris

By far the best show in the series
10 June 2007 | by (Lubbock, Texas) – See all my reviews

Who would have thought Michael Kozoll, of all people, would write a lighthearted mystery that brings out the very best in the series? Even the music by Stu Phillips is far above average, particularly in the last few minutes. Although the identity of the villain is right under your nose (hint: which character acts really, really dumb and is not the lead actress?), this has lots of humor, a fair amount of suspense and even a little pathos. Director John Newland does a fine job of bringing out the elements and does some nice camera setups. The final shootout is a little lame in concept, but the dialog (mostly from Pete, who knows it's lame) saves it. The final chase music is an interesting mixture of piano, tympani and and strings, gradually building along with the suspense, leading into the music which was briefly the show's theme and remained as the curtain music leading into the closing credits (where it belonged). Great performances by Ann Prentiss as a loony artist and Lucille Benson as the manager of a cemetery.
