She kept talking about this dream she had where he disappeared
16 December 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

After a public speech in which he had presented his new book, a successful writer was shot dead in the street. He had old-fashioned views about women: they had to stay at home to raise properly their own children, protecting them from drugs and lust. Anyway, as it sometimes happened in case like this, he hid something: he paid a 3.5 million settlement to prevent an employee from exposing him to the public about a harrassment. The girl molested had tapes and despite the sum granted to her she wanted to expose him as well because he put an end to her career. Anyway she had an alibi and detectives tried to follow a different pattern. His wife, just got out from a rehab, may have had a relationship with another girl (Dana Eskelson) and they both owned a red ski cap worn by the shooter. Then the trial begin and it's all about money.

Great episode, in my point of view the better of this season, I like very much the "order" part. Great performance for the wife: by looking in her eyes, you can't trust anything she said, she's too greedy.
