McGarrett is awakened at 3:00 A.M. by a phone call from a past girlfriend, who hangs up before he is fully awake. The girlfriend then goes back to her husband's beach house and finds him dead from multiple blows to the head. Pieces of evidence around the crime scene implicate the woman, and eventually McGarrett is forced to arrest her (amid numerous flashbacks to their romance when McGarrett was a Navy lieutenant -- there are scenes filmed at the U.S.S. Arizona memorial where the woman's brother drowned on December 7, 1941). But not only does McGarrett have to fight his own emotional involvement, he has to check out at least three other possible suspects in the killing: the husband's law partner, his daughter from a previous marriage and the daughter's hot-shot attorney fiancé' who knows a great deal about crime scenes.

Yeah, don't remind me... Years of classes by day, driving a cab at night... Studying in between, sleeping when and if there was any time in between.
