Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson investigates the death of model Heather Kingsley, found dead in the shower of her home. While her team is pretty well prepared to write it off as an accident, Brenda finds it just a tad too convenient that the woman died on the only day of the week when none of her servants were home, also noticing a shaving nick on the dead woman's leg with no razor to be found. She learns that Dean Kingsley, Heather's actor husband who was supposedly alone on his sailboat when all this happened, is a serial womanizer always promising his girlfriends marriage, only to break it off saying he can't afford the costs incurred under a pre-nuptial agreement. As Brenda pushes forward, Assistant Chief Pope knows only too well the dangers of celebrity murder investigations and wants her to go slowly. She finds herself working alone with no one at the office to support her - well, save for one willing to step forward and help her save face. Written by garykmcd / revised by statmanjeff

Did You Know?


At the beginning of the episode, we see Brenda struggling to find her way to the scene of the crime along Mulholland Drive. For someone new to LA, this wouldn't be surprising. Mulholland Drive runs from Cahuenga Blvd. near Universal City Studios over the ridge of the Hollywood Hills and Santa Monica Mountains, past several famous canyon roads lined with exclusive homes, including Laurel, Benedict and Coldwater Canyons. At Topanga Canyon Blvd., its name changes to Mulholland Highway. From there it winds 22 miles until it meet the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. See more »

Murder in High Places
11 February 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This begins with the murder of a model who hasn't worked in two years. After the forensic exam, it is found that she died of nicotine poisoning delivered through the scalp. Her husband, a famous movie star, has a boat and was two-timing her to the nth degree. It all involves a set up of lies he used to seduce these women, wishing he could marry them but for a prenup. He is very handsome and they are easy targets, each thinking she is the only one.
