A serial bomber tagged by the papers as the "Good Luck Bomber," gives warning, leaves mocking notes, and constructs devices which the bomb squad is unable to defuse. He seems to have no motive, makes no demands, espouses no causes he's fighting for.....just what is going on? The prime suspect, Joe Milner, has a prior record and is egotistical regarding his explosive expertise. At one point, he helps disable a bomb placed in a hospital; the police are mystified. When a bomb threat is received by a refinery, Milner agrees to help-for a million dollar fee. Kojak sets a trap at the refinery to find out who really set the bomb.

Demosthenes was the middle name of Georgios Savalas (Telly Savalas's brother) who played Detective Stavros in 'Kojak'. At the time the second series of 'Kojak' was being produced, the actor did not want it to be generally known that he was Telly's brother in case accusations of nepotism were levelled. Georgios Savalas therefore gave his middle name (and ONLY that) for use in the opening credits of the programme. In later series, he is credited as 'George Savalas', having anglicized his first given name for the purpose. See more
