Frank Lane (David McCallum) is the head of security of an important auction house, and he is the best there is, which is why the Corvini Inheritance - an almost priceless collection of renaissance jewellery - is placed in his care. But Frank isn't only a security man at work, he even takes his job home, keeps a close eye on the goings-on in his neighbourhood and puts everything down in his journal.

One day, his next-door-neighbour Eva (Jan Francis) is threatened by some peeping tom in a skimask who even tried to break into her appartment - and from here on, Frank takes a special interest in her safety in particular and her in general, installing all kinds of precautions including a video camera in the hallway in front of her door. By now though, the Corvini Inheritance, which is said to be cursed, has taken some hypnotic control over him and he starts slipping up. Plus Eva shows not nearly the same interest in him he does in her, and soon she brings a boyfriend home and all he can do is watch on his video surveillance system. But then, one day, one day when watching a surveillance tape from a few minutes ago he sees the man with the skimask in the hallway, and he murders Eva in cold blood. But when he takes off the skimask, the killer proves to be Frank himself ...

 

The premise of this episode - a security man getting so caught up in his job that he breaks down in the end - is incredibly interesting, unfortunately the episode as such falls several feet short of its promise ... simply because the script doesn't really work out and several plot elements seem to be ill at ease with each other. Still, the episode isn't all bad, it's well played and still features some interesting plottwists - it's just not as good as it could/should have been, not by a long shot.
