A bad shooting, a tragic mistake
7 October 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

While staking out a drug dealer two of Kojak's detectives separate, one drug dealer played by Hurd Hatfield shoots another and walks away with money. That's been the elegant Hatfield's modus operandi, ripping off dealers and killing them. This particular dealer is the brother of a well known mafioso so it will be more than cops after Hatfield.

But McGinn while pursuing Hatfield accidentally shoots his partner and that brings the weight of the world around him. But Telly Savalas tells Dan Frazer he needs McGinn to keep at it because he's the only one who knows the players.

McGinn's got the weight of the world on him before the shooting with a drug addicted girlfriend in Lynn Redgrave. He's also having vision problems which are never properly explained.

Hatfield and Redgrave and McGinn are standout performers here and Morgan Fairchild has a small bit. But too much is unresolved in this story.
