Viktor Mendelssohn, diamond cutter to the stars, is murdered at home, the only testimony coming from neighbor Betty Fulford. Although a hallucinogen in his tea pot gives Patrick Alice in Wonderland style visions of his late, murdered daughter Charlotte, he deciphers those cryptic observations and investigates. Viktor was about to treat a rare huge, blue stone, later found in his eager, devoted assistant Julian Gallego's bag, which rival master cutter Fahad Ranjani was after. Written by KGF Vissers

Wish she was nicer
19 January 2020 | by jknousakSee all my reviews

This is the SECOND appearance of Charlotte and she turns out to be . . . not nice. I did not like how she is portrayed -- lippy and sullen and sarcastic. Oh well. And although the "Trivia" indicates it's her first appearance incorrectly, Charlotte appeared in Season 1 -- as a 4 or 5 year old playing the piano and asking her dad if he liked it.
