All kinds of illusions
4 December 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Rock Hudson and Susan St.James enter a world where the San Francisco PD has no jurisdiction. After capturing a criminal on a San Francisco trolley car, our hands on Police Commissioner and his wife go to séance held by Sharon Acker who was acquitted of murdering her husband Philip Carey. Flashbacks show he was probably no great loss. Suspicions do remain though.

The various guest stars are mostly people who have some connection with Acker and her late husband. There is a nice turn in this one by John Astin who works the police lab. But this episode held no suspense for me because given the nature of the campaign of terror against Acker starting with that séance it's rather obvious who the villain is. And of course there's another murder discovered as well.
