Carries a nasty sting
14 October 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This one's an episode with a twist because almost at the beginning we see Aaron Stafford shoot the victim almost point blank. But as we also learn Stafford acts as a collector for bookie Boris McGivar. And McGivar has an interesting technique in collecting debts. He shoots people with blank cartridges which can carry a nasty sting. They can injure you as well too close. But the fright usually makes the victim cough up quick.

Only this time Stafford uses a live round which he says that McGivar slipped to him as this particular victim was a would be rival in the bookmaking business in his territory.

Of course this is all part of a more elaborate scheme and some motives involving Stafford that were way too obscure. This does not make it one of the better Criminal Intent stories.

However Vincent D'Onofrio's final interrogation technique in this one is highly original. That's the real story and I can't reveal it.
