Storyline

A pair of suicides at the same hotel makes Kojak believe that they were actually murders as he finds connections between the victims. Discovering that a young Army wife had fallen from a roof at an earlier convention (which they had attended) leads Kojak to her call girl sister. She has convinced the soldier that it is his duty to punish the men involved. As he's about to kill the last person related to the girl's death, Kojak must prevent another next murder.

Quotes

Lt. Theo Kojak: [while talking about the first death] Yea, the usual not-so-hot-time-in-the-old-town-tonight. What time did he go off?

When Push Comes To Shove
22 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

This was a pretty interesting story of revenge by a man and a woman who are extremely bitter over a death a year earlier that was deemed suicide. They both know better. The victim was the aforementioned man's wife and the aforementioned woman's sister.

The plan is for the man - an athletic guy who is shape to pull off physical stunts - to do the same thing to the men responsible for killing his wife. In other words, when these guys - all at an annual convention - are alone in their rooms, they are going to get pushed out the windows and fall to their death!! Also in on the plot is the woman, but she doesn't much except encourage/threaten.

Kojak and the police get more and more involved as the body count goes up and it's more-than-obvious this can't be coincidental.....not several bodies falling to their deaths at the same convention. Their job, of course, is track down who is responsible and it leads to a very dramatic conclusion. Both of the villains in here are intense and fun to watch although the female gets a little to melodramatic at the end.
