Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the murder of Steven Campbell, a dealer in rare coins and antiques who is found bludgeoned to death in his store. Some relatively low value coins were taken but if it was a robbery, the thief left far more valuable coins on the shelves. Also missing are 40 Greek and Roman coins belonging to the victim's good friend, Richard Peterson. The detectives work on the premise that Campbell knew the killer as he let the person into the store after hours. It turns out Campbell was having financial difficulties and they suspect Peterson but it appears that someone was after Peterson claiming the missing coins belonged to them. It leads the to arrest of Judith Sandler whose father, a Holocaust survivor, once owned those coins. As the DA's office delves deeper into the case, a question arises as to whether Peterson ever owned the missing coins. Written by garykmcd

In the teaser, a well-to-do couple walking down a Manhattan street stops to look in the window of an upscale coin gallery. The man and woman get very upset by something they see inside, prompting a call to 911. We aren't shown what it is they see, but we assume that it's a dead body. Which it turns out to be, but when Briscoe and Curtis arrive at the crime scene, the victim is all the way at the back of the gallery, lying on the floor behind a cabinet and positioned in such a way as to make a view of the body from the street impossible.

User Reviews

Karen Allen is one outstanding actress.
7 August 2018 | by theoshulSee all my reviews

Karen Allen absolutely inhabits her role. And it's a very challenging role, because the character is kind of one-dimensional and exaggeratedly dramatic. It must have been very difficult to play this role without over-acting and losing the sense of realism.
