Valerie Reynolds is a rich young American woman living in Paris. She's also a former Olympic skier. Her boyfriend, Jeff Garrett, also an American, is a television corespondent. He's just returned to Paris from an assignment in the Mideast to find out from her brother that she departed for Holland some weeks ago. He had been receiving letters from her that were postmarked from Paris so this makes no sense. Deciding that the only thing to do is to travel to Holland, he goes there and when he arrives all indications are that she has jilted him for another man. This is an enjoyable listen.

An American woman falls for a Frenchman in Paris. The man is a serial killer. A French police inspector has a plan to catch him before he can claim his next victim.

Not too bad of an episode. I was definitely confused at the beginning on what was really going on, but after the explanation it made more sense. I was also wondering about the title, but it made sense in the end (which I thought it must, but just not how).

The killer's confession would not have helped the police because he had already been found innocent in a court of law and no one can be tried twice for the same crime - this is called the rule against " double jeopardy " . For example, O.J. Simpson could have admitted he killed his wife after his trial was over and he could not have been tried again .
