A police detective kills a Manhattan lawyer, after setting up an elaborate alibi for himself. First, Nick Ferro lets Pinky, who he just busted on the street, inject some horse the junkie bought. Ferro then phones in the collar. While Pinky is nodding off in Ferro's car, the policeman digs a gun with a silencer out of a sidewalk hiding place, and cabs to the male attorney's hotel love nest. Ferro switched the rest of the street heroin for another packet, and turns in a baggy of soap powder at the precinct, along with the addict, after the shooting. Why did one of Lt. Kojak's most decorated badges want the mouthpiece dead? Written by David Stevens

One jealous cop
7 November 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Hector Elizondo at first glance is the kind of go getting cop that any squad would want to have. Even off duty he drives by a drug deal and arrests the purchaser John Karlen. But that's all part of an elaborate alibi he's setting up for himself. You see he wants to murder the smart uptown white shoe law firm attorney who's been seeing Elizondo's wife Barbara Rhoades in a personal love nest.

I won't go into all of it, but his perfect alibi slowly falls apart and he's forced to give Karlen a hotshot of pure heroin to keep him from testifying. And he has another bit of bad luck, his partner comes down with appendicitis and he gets to work the case with Telly Savalas.

It takes a while, but Savalas eventually catches on. And it bothers him because Elizondo was a good cop and something of a protégé.

Kojak may have been honest, even self righteous to a fault, but he was human. This episode shows him at his most human.
