Another Cartwright involved woman bites the dust in this Bonanza story. It's Shirley Bonne, daughter of town banker Roy Roberts who Michael Landon has already bought the ring for. She works as a teller at her father's bank along side Beau Bridges who is shy and retiring and really can't summon up the courage to ask her for a date.
But later Bonne is killed and the chief suspect is Bridges. However his landlady Lurene Tuttle alibis him to the max. That's not however cooling off public opinion against Bridges and Deputy Sheriff Bing Russell has a nasty homicide to solve.
Bridges gives a fine multi-layered performance as the shy kid with some nasty secrets. Tuttle is also good as the landlady who sees Bridges as a substitute for her own dead son who would be the age of Bridges had he lived.
