  • In the isolation of Fire Island, only a hour's journey from the centre of New York, a murder is committed and Ken Preston must solve it.

    9.0
    Fire Island eventually became a rather notorious place, but when this episode first aired, it was still a little-known hideaway affording rich New Yorkers the perfect spot for a quiet weekend away from the frenzy of metropolitan routine. This also makes it, in this story, the perfect setting for a murder, but the episode isn't the Agatha Christie imitation that synopsis might make you expect. The course of the investigation affords some moments of disquieting revelation, and several people, including series regulars, have to face up to uncomfortable truths about themselves. Mary Astor and Joan Hackett (who often appeared in the show as Ken Preston's girlfriend) give fine performances.moreless
