Inspector Lewis Erskine runs into several dead ends in a search for a psychotic killer whose victims are all in the same college sorority. He enlists the aid of an agent who had been one of its members.
This episode marks another time when Inspector Erskine works with a female FBI agent. When J. Edgar Hoover was alive, women were consigned to secondary and tertiary roles. Mary Frann (1943-98), who played S.A. Pat Driscoll, would play the spouse to Bob Newhart sitcom Newhart, which ran from 1982 to 1990.
