The Mad Bomber
4 May 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Once again the LAPD is working with the firm of Bailey&Spencer to solve a crime. A series of random bombings of various businesses with no connection apparently. At least none that Lt. Byron Keith can figure out. But Roger Smith does and in the middle of it is married couple Larry Ward and Joan Marshall.

Ward is an explosives expert and did serve some time. But he's only part of it. The real bomber is Frank DeKova who most definitely has a whole suit missing from his deck.

It's all kind of weird and in fact it doesn't make any rational sense. But the final confrontation with Jeff Spencer and DeKova is an exciting one. Worth watching for that alone.
