Storyline

Popular Mayor Gavin Channing dies while surfing, but although coroner Woody shares Shawn's murder suspicion, the chief refuses to ruffle political feathers and has it called an accident. Shawn suspects a political motive tied to a major real estate project, focusing on the interim mayor and forces an election by standing s candidate, only to find his alibi solid, so the focus shifts to the merry widow, her and the mayor's adulterous lovers and a governor campaign fund. Written by KGF Vissers

Love the show. Worst episode of the series.
3 September 2019 | by M0vieL0verSee all my reviews

This was one of the weakest shows in all of the series. Too bad. One of the best series made. Fun for the whole family.
