Plot Overview

'Mother Goose', the author of best-selling children's books, winds up strangled to death with her own typewriter ribbon. Burke is led to a number of rival children's entertainers, all of whom have a motive for seeing the old lady dead. He also must deal with the aptly-named Lolita, a 12-year-old neighbor of the victim, who has a 'thing' for sophisticated older men.




"Be it big or be it small, do it right or not at all...Burke's law!"--Another great quote from the good Captain, just rambling at the beginning of the episode.
