Sydney Poitier’s Police Lieutenant Virgil Tibbs is at it again, this time investigating the murder of a call girl in San Francisco. Alternating between the case—whose prime suspect is protestant minister Martin Landau—and Tibbs’ life at home with wife Barbara McNair and son, the follow up to In the Heat of the Night further fills out Poitier’s trailblazing character.
