Hit-man who loves his job
17 May 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Featuring an appearance of Madison Arnold as a syndicate hit-man who really loves his work, this Rockford Files episode begins once again with Stuart Margolin banging on James Garner's trailer door in the middle of the night.

For once Angel really didn't do anything other than witness Arnold murder a hooker. He's like that, Arnold will occasionally throw in a freebie and that makes him quite the syndicate loose cannon. As for Margolin that doesn't stop him from trying to exploit the situation, he's got himself a ghostwriter and a publisher to sell his story.

But when the fix is put in and the case dismissed, both Rockford and Angel are in the crapper. Arnold presents a problem to the guys who hired him as well, Frank DeKova and Vincent Baggetta, he's bringing down to much heat.

In a rather intricate way it all gets resolved in the end. And of course Angel's schemes are blown sky high. But as sure as death and taxes you know Angel will have another scheme in the next episode Stuart Margolin makes an appearance.
