PLOT OR PREMISEWhile on a flight back from a trip to Hawaii with both Ranger and Morelli (it’s complicated), Stephanie’s seatmate gets whacked during a layover and everyone thinks Stephanie knows something.
WHAT I LIKED
While the lighter side of the Plum series is the main draw, it is nice to see that once in awhile it goes a bit darker. Stephanie has real bruises and knife nickmarks, and Morelli and Ranger had a knock-down drag-out fight, with Stephanie doing the dragging (it is only told as a past event, but still good even if you don’t actually “see it”).
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE
As always, there are a few too many incompetents running around, and too many coincidences.
THE BOTTOM LINE / TWEET
A little darker than usual
