All Eyes and Fingers Points to Lee!
5 January 2019 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

Barbara McNair played Lee Richards, a successful singer who has a terrible marriage to a husband. McNair deserved an Emmy for her performance. Lee's husband and his mistress goes missing. All eyes and fingers point to Lee's involvement. Mac does his best to defend his old friend. McNair also sings beautifully like Diana Ross. The surprise twist comes at the end o the episode.
