Newly Minted Inspector Theo Kojak is called away from a most formal dinner tux
and all to a frightening crime scene, the murder of two pre-school brothers. A
crime still hard to conceive yet evidence points to mother Kate Nelligan.
A lot has been left vague in this Kojak film, The Price Of Justice. I could never
understand the glamorous Nelligan marrying working stiff and bar owner Pat
Hingle. He certainly loves her though considering what he does.
At the crime scene a black book is discovered and Nelligan has a lot of important and powerful friends she can call on. Including some at that most
formal affair that Kojak was attending.
Telly Savalas's motive is left purposely vague in his method of investigation.
But Kojak fans know that ultimately the truth is what matters most to our
follicly challenged crime fighter.
Not one of the better Kojak films, but a must for fans of the series and character.
