it's just that you said that your feet were cold, so you must have been barefoot
5 October 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

Back in the eighties, a crazy woman speaking German (Karen Culp) had a bath while her two children stayed downstairs. The old one looked after the other who had an iron burning in his forearm. Shortly after, the older boy go upstairs and a power cut let us believe the mother was killed by throwing the heater in the bathtub. Nineteen years goes by and a charming wealthy man get a call before a charity event: soon after he meet his brother, shooting him in cold blood in a dark alley. Goren and Eames had issues in finding him because he used to change identity once in a while and this time he takes the one of a novelist writer. He is a clever con artist, used to worked as dishwasher in a restaurant near Princeton where he learned tricks to woo women. Will Goren manage to let him talk?

It's a strange episode that look like Columbo's crime drama, where the perp was always seen at the beginning, so it lacks some suspense.
