Burke's Law depicted the crime-solving adventures of dashing, debonair swinger Amos Burke, an L.A.P.D. homicide captain who just happened to also be a millionaire. Each week, Burke (a suave, and very eligible, womanizing bachelor) would be faced with a mysterious murder case involving an assortment of colorful suspects (each portrayed by a special guest star, often cast "against type" and getting a chance to ham shamelessly). Burke, upon receiving the inevitable call to the crime scene, usually gave a terse "When? Where? I'm on my way"; then, forsaking his mansion and "date du jour", he would be transported in style by Henry, his Philippine chauffeur/valet/chef/butler. Burke was aided in his investigations by brash young Detective Tim Tilson, who was usually trying to outshine his boss.
