Storyline

Sam calls Quincy at Danny's with a strange case: an accident victim with very unusual blood test results. The man died from an small gash on his forehead, because his blood could not clot. Monohan arrests the driver, who was discovered with a small amount of cocaine that he claims belonged to the passenger. To clear the driver's name, Quincy and Sam must discover exactly how the dead man received a lethal dose of radiation. He works at a nuclear power plant, but the type of radioactive material there could not have caused his death. So where was he exposed? And why? Written by CommanderBalok

Hard to believe but interesting.

As long as you know and can ignore some of the usual clichés, this is a very good episode of "Quincy"--one I almost scored an 8. It begins with a very sick guy trying to drive himself to the airport late at night. But, he crashes his car and convinces a passerby to drive the vehicle. However, on the way, another car appears and forces them off the road--and the vehicle flips and explodes. Soon, the driver (who survived) is up on charges for killing his sick passenger and for having drugs in the vehicle. However, Quincy (with his ESP that ALWAYS tells him who is telling the truth) KNOWS the driver is innocent and goes about trying to prove it. But, what he learns about the passenger--THAT is a surprise. The man was on the verge of death already--as he was suffering from a massive overdose of radiation. What happened? Where did the poisoning come from and why would someone want to be 100% certain he was dead?! The show had a few shortcomings (other than the ESP there were also a few other logical jumps--such as Monahan's usual desire to convict ANYONE despite reasonable evidence to the contrary) but was constantly entertaining. Well worth seeing--if not a bit far-fetched. But, it's a TV show, so, like me, you can probably suspend some of your feelings of disbelief.
