One Con Job Too Many For Young Woman/Old Man
16 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a fascinating story about a con-man who was terrific at his business. The twist - and we find this out very early - is that the old man/con man is really a young woman! This woman has a fabulous disguise as an older man who uses a cane and shuffles around looking for sympathetic Good Samaritans. She then bilks them for big bucks. She also runs another con by a being a sexy lady who takes advantage a young man attracted to her....and scams them, big-time, too.

Well, one day a former victim spots her in her old-man disguise and she winds up getting stabbed to death just outside a crowded subway stop.

Also on that subway train, in the same car as the killer and victim, is "Ellie" (Sydney Park), the adopted daughter of "Jo Danville" (Sela Ward). That turns into being a mini-soap opera sub-plot and I don't need to go into details.

Mac and the crew have to figure out who this victim is and what she was all about, as well as find the killer, who used an unusual knife.

Good story.
