Burke's Law was an American television detective series that ran from September 20, 1963 to January 12, 1966.  A total of three seasons aired on ABC with a run of 81 episodes. 

Amos Burke was a Los Angeles chief of detectives who was also a millionaire with a chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II, a mansion, and a high-wheeling lifestyle. The hallmarks of this series were glamorous, sophisticated settings, unusual twists on formula homicide plot-lines, and big-name guest stars. After a couple of seasons, the format was radically revamped. Burke left the police force and became an agent for US Intelligence. At that point, the show 's name changed to "Amos Burke, Secret Agent ".  

Who Killed Jason Shaw? (01/03/1964)

When a shady businessman is found dead, fully clothed, in a hotel shower, surrounded by burned thousand dollar bills, Burke is confronted with a group of men who seem to have absolutely nothing in common. A shipbuilder with a musical hobby, a haughty wine connoisseur, a loud-mouthed used-car salesman, and a man who breeds carnivorous plants . The dizzy blonde who discovered the body may or may not be just a pawn in a scheme. While Tim becomes interested in the dead man's secretary, Burke has his eye on a lovely sculptor, who may be trying to steer him away from her father, one of the suspects.
