A woman who heads a sportswear manufacturing company is found dead. Although it is ruled a suicide, the police detective in charge believes she was murdered, and his subsequent investigation begins to focus on the woman's son, who was blinded by her in an accident several years before.Written by
In the second of Bill Elliott's quintet of police stories his character surname was changed from Flynn to Doyle and he was to stay Doyle for the rest of this series. Why it was changed God only knows, but these films were nothing that the public couldn't get on television.
This time Lieutenant Doyle of the Los Angeles Police Department is called in on a case that looks like suicide. The woman's blind son Tom Drake called it in after discovering his mother's body and an open gas jet. The coroner even says it was suicide, but Elliott keeps investigating.
Of course it was murder and of course Elliott first zeroes in on Drake because he needed his mother's insurance money for the operation to cure his blindness. But in the end it turns into something entirely different.
Nice, but nothing special.
