Two men put a cushion over a beautiful blond's mouth and then hang her from the chandelier. The ME thinks it's suicide, but Kojak believes Azure Dee was murdered. Having met her as a young runaway strung out on drugs, Kojak had been proud of her progress. Azure had long since gotten clean from drugs and was now a call girl with a select and moneyed clientèle. To the consternation of his boss, Kojak insists on pursuing it as a homicide, calling attention to the total absence of personal items from her apartment. Her phone bill in the mailbox connects her to the Meadows family; her doorman provides leads regarding the males she entertained (including a judge). At her funeral, a young man shoots at Farley Meadows and is shot running away. Kojak finally puts the pieces together and arranges a confrontation in the Meadows home with all the suspects present.

The Party's Over for the Party Girl
3 January 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

As usual Kojak's instincts are right. The apparent suicide by hanging of call girl Denyce Liston is not a suicide. Several years earlier Telly Savalas busted this woman when she was a teenage junkie and then just peddling her body for a fix. She kicked the junk, but now folks pay some big bucks for her offerings.

Before it's declared a homicide Kojak has the squad investigating this one. As it turns out not only sex is being offered, but some high price stock fixing involving a sitting judge who was one of her clients and a top executive who was another.

Some good players like Priscilla Pointer, Stephen Elliott, John Glover, and Roger Robinson doing one of his semi-regular appearances as Gil Weaver on the Manhattan South Squad.

Kojak took this one real personal, even more than normal.
