    I agree with you Adam that the solution to this episode seemed a bit far fetched given that there was absolutely no indication that the murderer had any of the necessary skills to even come close to hitting anyone in the car while shooting from a motorcyle. Made me wonder if I had missed the discovery by Mr. Keene that the murderer was an Olympic caliber marksman and experienced biker.

    Even more disappointing to me was Mr. Keene’s stated reason for suspecting the murderer. Usually his understanding of human nature is a strong point playing a key role in his solving the mystery and is part of the charm of the series. In this case it was his extreme lack of understanding of girls/women that convinced him to leap to a conclusion with no other basis for suspicion. There must have been a lot of baffled female listeners in 1951 as well as quite a few offended ones.

    Seriously, if a teenage girl changing her hairstyle (especially to one becoming increasingly fashionable at the time, even if it is not, in the opinion of an elderly man, the most flattering) is grounds for an accusation of murder then flipping through a few high school yearbooks should give one dozens, if not hundreds, of girls to accuse…..
