(NBC, 3/23/1975, 90 mins). An atmospheric whodunit set in the 1940s that involves an author/criminologist in one of the cases stumping his New York City police inspector father the murder of a famed fashion designer. Jim Hutton and David Wayne continued their roles in the subsequent series (1975-76) that also had John Hillerman in a recurring role of pompous radio detective Simon Brimmer (a character not in the Ellery Queen mysteries). Subsequently retitled “Too Many Suspects.”
