Season 1, Episode 17: Sound of Trumpets

30 January 1975
Harry is attending a seaside jazz club when he hears a trumpeter playing in tune outside. Suddenly the trumpeter falls into the water - pushed in by a hit man unnoticed by anyone else. Harry, thinking the trumpeter passed out from being drunk, takes him to his beach house to sober up, and the next morning leaves to buy groceries. When Harry returns he finds a bottle of scotch broken and his car gone, stolen by the trumpeter. He also finds a young singer, Ruthie Daniels, waiting for him; Ruthie knows who the trumpeter is - her father, Arthur "Art Sully" Daniels. Daniels went to prison in 1963 for stabbing to death a mobster named Reisman and is now on parole; Daniels was gypped by his record company, led by Sid Hacktel, out of royalties, and is being pursued. Harry smokes out the hit man seeking Daniels and identifies him as Manny "Smitty" Schmicht, a former bouncer for one of Hacktel's nightclubs - and who is left-handed. When Sid Hacktel is found shot to death, Harry's car with Daniel's hat and trumpet are found abandoned in the driveway, but Harry recognizes it to be a setup since he had the hat and horn at his house that morning. Lt. Trench is stuck, since the only hard evidence he has is against Daniels even though he recognizes Daniels is being set up, since Hacktel's company is under FBI investigation for pirating recordings of jazz concerts and festivals, and an FBI agent involved in the investigation was found stabbed to death six weeks earlier. But both Harry and Trench encounter more than they bargained for when a family friend of the Daniels' is found stabbed to death and Ruthie Daniels is taken hostage by Smitty.

Season 2, Episode 13: The Madonna Legacy

11 December 1975
A man calls Harry Orwell while Harry is asleep, but when the half-awake Harry answers, there is nothing, so Harry hangs up. The next day Harry learns that Frank McDonald, an old friend from his days with the San Diego PD, has been found dead. The death is ruled a suicide but Harry is skeptical, and after learning that McDonald was the man who called him that night, Harry begins backtracking those who most recently knew McDonald. He meets a woman McDonald knew from attending AA meetings, a woman who was married to wealthy businessman Walter Nesbitt. Harry then begins piecing together information on a murder case McDonald was involved in years earlier involving the death of Walter Nesbitt's secretary, Angela Thomas. Several attempts on the lives of Harry, Nesbitt's estranged son-in-law, and Nesbitt's mentally disturbed son lead Harry and Lt. Trench back to the man convicted of Angela Thomas' murder, a man named Bill Henderson, a violent man who was recently paroled but who Harry learns was not the real killer.

Season 2, Episode 21: The Mysterious Case of Lester and Dr. Fong

18 March 1976
The fourth "Lester" episode is a pilot for what would have been a spin off "Fong and Hodges" series. (Sadly, the episode's relatively low ratings may have been the tipping point in ABC deciding to cancel "Harry O." Harry receives a note from Simon Applequist, asking Harry to come to a meeting at Applequist's palatial mansion. Applequist is a fabulously successful businessman who made more enemies than even he could count. Applequist greats Harry and introduces him to his various relatives -- one of whom is Lester Hodges. Then he fixes a baleful glare on the group and announces someone has sent him a threatening audiotape. Applequist puts the tape on and sits back as a whispered death threat plays. As the voice hisses: "Wait to die! Wait to die!" that's what Applequist does. Officially he suffered a heart attack, but Lester and his oft-mentioned mentor, Dr. Creighton Fong find that Applequist was poisoned by a venom found in the skin of an Amazon River basin alligator. At the reading of the will, Applequist's attorney reveals that Applequist has left almost everything to his brother-in-law Edward Tabor. Lester pokes around and gets everyone to whisper the same word to him, which he records. Dr. Fong finds that the word was uttered by Tabor. Lester goes to Tabor and confronts him, seeing his lab of various exotic poisons. Sure enough, Tabor has a nearly-empty vial of caimanol, the poison, in his collection. But the moment Lester points this out to Tabor, who is sipping a drink, Tabor drops dead in his tracks -- the caimanol was planted in the drink. As Harry (who is off screen for most of this episode) leaves to check out the backgrounds of the suspects, one heir after another gets a lethal dose of caimanol in various fashions, until only two suspects are left. And Lester is one of them.
