A reputed treasure diver is found murdered. The valuable Spanish coins found in his home, which must stem from one of the most wanted wrecks, are however fake, and he was secretly working for a world-famous salvager, whose reputation is at stake. But several small shrimps in the story also hide the truth. Trough the victim's family past, the team discovers why he was obsessed with a Honoluly raid-sunk warship, a veteran's casket and a fortune in war-stamped banknotes. Steve meanwhile discovers that his former mentor Joe White tried to prevent him finding out the truth about father McGarrett's fatal past. Written by KGF Vissers

Good episode that really went around the bush in relating the story. When a sea diver is murdered, there are too many explanations regarding his sea diving. Some of the scenes reminded me of Lloyd Bridges diving away in the epic television show-"Sea Hunt" of years ago.

The show seemed to be producing the stars of yesteryear. Patty Duke portrayed an Alzheimer's stricken mother; Peter Fonda briefly joining her as a fellow diver and Billy Baldwin seems to have found a weekly role for himself as the guy that the Grace Park character has hooked up. For her new part,Park really looks like a hooker, but her real intent is still a secret. Watch her cagey eye movements; they seem to tell the whole story.
