Richard Diamond, Private Detective — The Louis Spence Case (Part 6 of 7)
Summary of Part 6
Diamond has a psychological advantage now. He goes back in knowing more than he did the first time. And this time, he has a plan. But for his plan to work, he needs Walt Levinson’s cooperation and Otis’ help in the music department. Together, they try to disarm Spence.
A Psychological Advantage
Knowing how Spence thinks of himself and how he feels misunderstood and unappreciated, Diamond is able to go in and tell Spence exactly what he wants to hear. He is still having a difficult time convincing Spence that he understands him, but gradually Spence does come to believe that Diamond recognizes his talent. For this, he is willing to spare Diamond’s life, but he is still determined to go through with his plan of blowing up the police station. Then the music starts…

Then Diamond has to masterfully turn the conversation from music to the bomb. He has to find out how it works so that he can disable it. Can he talk about the bomb without getting Spence overly excited? Will Diamond be able to save the day?
Listen to find out…
