Three seemingly ordinary people are recruited to make a hit on a mob boss from Chicago visiting Hawaii. The hit is done with precision. The killers are equipped with firearms with plastic coverings that prevent shell casings from being left for evidence, for example. Also, the three participants, in effect, provide alibis for each other. Five-O initially thinks this is a professional hit until its probe begins to uncover the truth. McGarrett & Co. must figure out why these three people were so desperate they could be blackmailed into performing a murder. Second, Five-O must figure out what the ultimate goal of the caper is.

Pretty nifty story idea..too bad the resolution seemed too easy
15 April 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode had a really neat premise. It begins with a man visiting with three different people who seemingly have little in common and are ordinary citizens. However, somehow this man convinces each of them to participate in a contract killing--and it's obvious he has SOMETHING on them to force them to do this. What makes it more interesting is all the trouble the man goes to do cover their tracks--with guns with plastic covers to catch the ejected shells, silencers and bored out muzzles to hide the type of gun. It all seems very fool-proof and very clever. Unfortunately, the episode only lasted about 50 minutes so this seemingly perfect crime unraveled a bit too quickly for my taste--it should have been tougher to solve this. I guess you can't blame the writers too much and finding out why these rather ordinary people resorted to murder is pretty interesting--particularly the businessman! Overall, well written even if rushed and pretty original--it's among the better episodes of season 4.
