A Case That Almost Drives Theo (and others) Crazy
20 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This crime is a tough one on "Theo Kojak." For a long time in this story, he keeps it to himself, driving the rest of the force crazy. They think he's lost his mind and he's disrupting the force. Finally, his longtime friend "Al" gets him to say what's bugging him.

Of course, we know all along what's happening. After a very rich dude - a guy Kojak has been trying to nab for eight years - gets caught with heroin at his place, it looks like curtains for him. However, one of sharp men he employs has a solution to keep to keep the boss out of jail. His plan is to kidnap "Captain McNeil's" wife and swap her for the evidence. Kojak is to get that evidence and keep his mouth shut, or "Lillian McNeil" will die.

The actor who plays the kidnapper is interesting. He kind of looked like a cross between Peter Fonda and Kevin Bacon. At any rate, he was an effective villain, more so than the big boss who hired him.
