This one has a lot of plot twists....and I like that.
14 May 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

A horrible murder occurs--a pretty young woman is killed and then someone cuts open her stomach! It appears that this might be the case of a drug mule who is murdered for drugs they are hiding in their stomach. However, Lt. Sal Drasso of Internal Affairs thinks that a cop killed her and might be handling drugs. With what seems like little evidence, Drasso goes on a crusade against this fellow cop--and in the process he manipulates and uses people (including Quincy) to make his case. Everyone hates this guy...everyone! But is the case really about drugs like cocaine or is there something else going on with this corpse? And, as for the cop being investigated, although Monahan and Quincy hate Drasso, perhaps Drasso is on to something. Watch this one and see.

This episode has several good things going for it. The plot is quite original and kept me guessing. I liked the Drasso character--he was like a human-weasel hybrid--and a lot of fun to watch. As the other review on IMDb says, Joseph Sirola plays 'a guy you love to hate'! I also appreciated how the show was NOT a social crusade show but one about crime and murder--the best sort of shows on "Quincy". Well worth seeing and one of the best shows of season 9.
