Storyline

Priority Homicide investigates the violent murder of Karen Bivas, who, along with her chef-husband Paul, ran a recently-opened five-star restaurant. There is no shortage of suspects in the case. Foremost, her husband is something of a hothead always flying off the handle, who could have easily killed her in a fit of temper. Secondly, there's Dennis Dutton, a multi-millionaire known to exhibit violence towards women (with whom Brenda's had previously dealings). As the restaurant's principal financial backer, he, too, could have killed her. Convinced of Dutton's guilt (since the m.o. fits his pattern), Brenda leans on well-known restaurant critic Tom Newman to see how well Dutton's iron-clad alibi of having dinner with him stands up under close scrutiny.

Trivia

The restaurant L'Amboise is "played" by Hollywood's famous French restaurant L'Orangerie. In operation for nearly 30 years, L'Orangerie is considered to be LA's finest French restaurant, as well as one of its most expensive. Known for its formal French style, it has adapted to American practices to some degree after it was criticized for its practice of giving women menus without prices, even when business women hosted business meals.
