A great foil
5 November 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Lindsay Wagner, an old friend of Jim Rockford's returns in this episode asking for some detective work in regard to the death of young Melissa Greene who worked for her. A brief prologue to the main story shows Greene getting into the car of Robert Webber who is a State Senator and then Webber getting into an accident.

Webber made several guest appearances on The Rockford Files and he's usually a tough guy, sometimes a bad guy. Here however the State Senator turns out to be as much a victim as Greene was.

Joe Santos as Dennis Becker helps Garner run down a few leads, plate numbers that lead to the eventual solving of what turns into two murders. The reasons are a bit murky though. But I do like the way Garner foils the villain in the end.
