Storyline

Continuation of Episode #1.5. Virgil Tibbs was not injured in the ambush by Logan and Bass, but Wallace Posey was killed. Chief Gillespie "calls in a favor" from Rattler, a flamboyant African-American drug dealer, through unusual methods of intimidation not found in police manuals. The favor leads to the investigation of Ritchie Epman for wholesale drug trafficking and murder. In a desperate effort to tie up loose ends, Bass tries to kill John Reeves in the hospital. Bass attacks Althea, who is visiting Reeves. The climax at the hospital and at Epman's estate is powerful. Even Buddy Trent get in his licks on the side of the good guys. Written by richardann
