Two off-duty police officers are killed when a bomb explodes in a bowling alley. A police informer (Paolo Olivarez), who had come to warn them, arrives too late and though slightly injured is able to hobble away. A Bronx detective demands that Kojak allow him to help bring in his informer; they trace him to his sister Marinella's in New Jersey. Back in New York, the bombers booby trap Paolo's apartment; when that fails, they notify him that they have kidnapped his sister to ensure his silence. Knowing that they want to kill him, Paolo offers to trade himself for her freedom. Kojak learns of his plans and where the bombers' HQ is; he faces a hostage situation involving Marinella, and Paolo is frantic. Will Kojak call their bluff? Written by jeaneva

An Early Look At An Actor Who Went On To TV Stardom
21 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two guys set off a bomb in a bowling alley, killing a couple of cops that were off-duty and enjoying themselves. Another cop - an undercover guy - sees what is happening and tries to warn them but he arrives as the bomb goes off, blowing him into the sidewalk but unhurt enough to hobble away.

So, with the help of Bronx cop, Kojak tries not only to get the bombers, but who's behind it all, too, and the undercover cop who apparently was a witness. The latter, however, wants to stay unnoticed.

Ironically, the guest actor in here is Daniel J. Travanti, who went on to become a big star in another police series, "Hill Street Blues," almost decade after this episode ran. He played "Capt. Frank Furillo. In this 1974 Kojak story, he plays "Lt. Chuck Danena." Jaime Sanchez also is good as the mysterious undercover cop, "Paolo Olivarez." There is a twist in this story near the end that is a shocker.
