Storyline

Detectives Lennie Briscoe and Ed Green investigate the death of Peter Grimaldi, a retired insurance salesman who was found dead in the backseat of a taxicab. Grimaldi had been helped into the cab by a black man but the driver has little more information. The medical examiner confirms that the victim died as a result of a six inch stab wound and a gunshot wound. Grimaldi's son and daughter have no idea who might have wanted to harm him and they refer the police to Gail Bartlett, one of Grimaldi's friends. It leads them to learn that Grimaldi was having trouble with insurance claimants for policies he sold to Jews during the Second World War telling them their money would safe. He never paid out any claims however. They suspect Grimaldi's former employers may have been responsible for his death. Written by garykmcd

I think these men should close their eyes and see my sister

An arab cabbie figured out his passenger was stabbed to death on the back seat: some black guy got him into the car before the lift. The victim was a old man of Italian origin whose wife died years before, retired from an insurance company but he probably still did some business on the side; he left a bank with his briefcase (full of money?) shortly before the accident. "Think so" related to the only witness was not enough for an indictment, so the only suspect was set free. Back in the WWII the salesman set up an insurance scam (life insurance involving Jews with no hope of collecting) in Eastern Europe and his son (Matt Servitto) hated him for that. Then it became a political matter with italian consulate that could be behind the murder. Things gone bad when police figured out he was shot before the stabbing by a Beretta gun. Insurance company chief was arrested for the "book" owned by the victim....

At first, I think this episode was a little out of time, because more than 50 years has gone by since the second world war. Anyway McCoy wants the truth, against all plea bargains and all start being interesting. The trial leaves to the audience all kind of surprises, please don't miss it. Best episode of the season, for sure.
