  • What starts out to be a murder of a University President turns into a brilliant cat and mouse game between Goren and a women from Australia posing as a Literature Professor from Oxford, England. The twist is who is she the professor or the crook or both.

    Brilliant episode which follows the regular path many episodes take but in this case changes mid-stream into a game of psychological wits between a female killer and Goren.

    In a momentous ending sequence the women trades notes one on one with Goren in the interrogation room. Right when Goren feels he has got her she gets release on a rit of habeas corpus and disappears at the completion of the episode.

    Finally someone truly worthy of Goren's intellect to cross swords with. This women possibly was responsible for the multiple murders of seven men in Thailand, taking the identity of another person in Australia, and then finally the murder of the perpetrator of the murder of the University President and then the killer himself.

    The question now is whether we will ever see Goren cross paths with this women again in the future. She was obviously intrigued with Goren as much as he was with her. The scenes between the two were sparkling almost. She is obviously a disturbed person but at the same time she has a photographic memory. Nicole Wallace played by Olivia d'Abo is terrific and hopefully we'll see her again in the future. I really enjoyed this episode and it was great fun. Thanks for reading...
