Did You Know?


Several times during the episode white abalone is referred to as being a fish. In fact, it is a large species of sea snail also known as "Haliotis sorenseni." Their natural habitat is off the coast of southern California and northern Baja Mexico. The white abalone is considered to have the most tender and flavorful meat of all the members of the abalone family. As a result, they have been harvested nearly to the point of extinction. As of 2019, they are considered to be a critically endangered species. See more »

Minute traces
26 April 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Critics of any kind including those who write reviews for IMDb are subject to all kinds of criticism themselves. It it's a bad review on something someone likes they will hear about it.

Two homicides are connected in a case that Vincent D'Onofrio and and Kathryn Erbe get for Major Case. The first victim is a woman in male drag found on the UN grounds by a diplomat. That guarantees Major Case will be there. She was not a performer of any kind, she was a food critic.

But the second victim is Alex Burns a rising young chef who is opening a new restaurant. He's disappeared, but there's enough traces of him to suspect there's a homicide for Goren and Eames. Minute traces to be sure.

Burns was married to Monica Keena, daughter of Chris Penn who is a well known chef with his own TV show. Let's say this whole family has issues.

Forensics plays a big part in solving this one as well as a con Goren runs on one of the cast.

The whole cast does a bang up job on this one.
