Leslie Charleston and Richard Hatch star in "Sky Above, Death Below". The show starts with Kate (Charleston) approaching Cannon to get him to accept her case. She claims that her father is not guilty of the murder he's charges with committing and wants Frank Cannon to investigate. However, he's hesitant to investigate, as it seems like an open and shut case. But, when Cannon does accept the case, he finds that there is more to it than meets the eye. There MIGHT be a witness who can prove the man's innocence. The problem is that this guy (Hatch) is on the run--as he's refusing to be drafted. Can Cannon find the guy AND stop the baddies from killing them both? What do you think?

This is an interesting show because it takes an interesting stance on the Vietnam War. Cannon encourages the witness to stand his ground--instead of running, be willing to go to jail to protest the war. And, the show is rather interesting and worth seeing. Not among the series' best, but still quite good.
