well, what did I expect in a 10 DVD set of "Specials"?, but I've seen a few others in a 10-pack that were really good. Not this one.

There is a cute scene with a cat that drinks beer, but is uncredited. That has to be worth one rating point? And there are some neat shots of downtown San Francisco, and the marina area, and that gets the second rating point! but not much else to even comment on.

Gus Monk flies back from... somewhere and is asked to help a hot- shot lawyer representing a syndicate hood with secrets. There are a few killings, a cop, an odd widow. I suppose it is just a TV pseudo- thriller.

And, being San Francisco, they (the director/writer etc) put in a totally unbelievable car chase, ending in an unsurvivable crash, but of course, Monk walks away from it and goes on to solve all the mystery.
