Storyline

Two workers and a customer in a vintage clothes shop are brutally murdered with a bayonet. The fourth,surviving,victim identifies the killer as John Smith,an educated but homeless ex-military man,who is arrested with the weapon on him. It is found out that he was previously charged with stalking a young woman but sloppy prosecution led to the case's collapse. He is also a law graduate and defends himself,despite a history of mental instability vouched for by his sister,Patricia. In court he claims that he was not himself that day and therefore not the killer. Steel brings in Patricia and uses Smith's paranoia to get his conviction. Written by don @ minifie-1

Like what they do with bears. Drove him back across the river and dumped him
23 October 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

After coming back from a lunch break, a sales assistant noticed that his boss, a colleague and a customer were stabbed to death. The weapon used was not the ordinary dagger, but something similar to a sword. The shop's owner had an argument before with a couple of Italian thieves, but they had strong alibi, telling the coppers that a strange, dirty man used to hang out near the shop. This fool is well-known by local precinct, being famous in the neighborhood to stalk bystanders. He used to take medication but he stopped for a while, leading him to be aggressive. After being caught by cops, he managed to defend himself in court, due to his law degree: he's insane, for sure, but he's smart when his mind is cleared. Will he manage to succeed in court?

I feel pity for his supportive sister who wants him to be cured in hospital. Brooks risks his life in confronting the perp at the library, but Devlin comes at the right time to subdue him.
