Vain and meglamaniacal
28 December 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Popular male model Ryan Locke is killed and of course the tabloids have a feeding frenzy. Locke had everything and I do mean everything that would make him a popular sex symbol. So when Leslie Hendrix of the Medical Examiner's Office says it was a homicide, he was smothered with a pillow and filled with enough oxycotin to stun an elephant, Goren and Eames go to work.

Their attention goes to Kathryn Erbe's former supervisor in vice Nestor Serrano who now heads security for billionaire Roger Rees who is vain and meglamaniacal a deadly combination. Rees really steals this one, a great example of what Lord Acton said about power corrupts and absolute power corrupting absolutely.

For fans of Roger Rees, this one is a must.
