One of the better episodes of season four.

The show begins with some hoods abducting Cannon and taking them to meet the boss. But the boss is NOT a mobster but some retired general and the General orders his men NOT to treat Cannon like this...he is a guest and can choose whether to take the case or not. It turns out that the General was married long ago and his wife left him. Apparently she soon had a child after this...and he only recently found out he was a father. He wants Cannon to find the girl and introduce her to him. Oddly, this goes well...too well. She should have been much harder to find...and Cannon isn't about to close the case even though the General tells him to. Cannon is convinced SOMETHING is afoot...something the General doesn't even suspect.

This is a neat episode. The pieces all fit together well and kept my interest throughout. Plus, I enjoyed seeing Kevin McCarthy as the General. Well worth seeing.
