Smuggling story with many twists
18 October 2007 | by ejrjrSee all my reviews

George Raft is a New York (City) Police Department lieutenant called to investigate what appears to be a simple assault and murder of a merchant seaman while walking with his girlfriend. But, of course that is the the big setup because why would a merchant seaman be randomly murdered.

The long and winding road leads to face powder which eventually is discovered to contain expensive jewelry smuggled from France to NYC. However, this is another diversion.

The owner of the cosmetics company looks like the proverbial Mister Big behind the smuggling operation. But, again the viewer is being mislead. At the end we learn the true culprit.

This series was shot in a soundstage but fortunately the producer had the money and desire to use a second unit to shoot location shots in NYC. However, we never see George Raft at NYC locations.

This is a well-written series and Raft is a great detective. So, I recommend watching a few episodes if you can find such.
