"Requiem for a Cop"
AIRDATE: 02.26.83


WHAT SAID:  

A private investigator's murder puts Hooker on the trail of an arsonist who's torching condemned buildings.

SYNOPSIS:  

Hooker and Romano are assigned to an arsonist case where they join forces with Max Silver, an ex-cop turned private investigator, and his daughter Linda. Max is able to trace a car parked near the arson scene to barmaid Cindy Cole. After Max questions Cindy about the fire, her boyfriend, Russ Jennings, and his partners worry that Cindy might talk and that Max is getting "too close" so they have Cindy call Max and set up a meeting at the bar. While Max is waiting, a man hired by Jennings stages a robbery and kills Max. Jennings then goes to Max's office to burn it and evidence he may have. Linda arrives and Jennings knocks her out. Hooker and Romano arrive at the office to break the news of Max's death just as the building explodes. Hooker is able to save Linda, while Romano is able to recover the tape from Max's answering machine. From the tape they are able to locate Cindy Cole. Meanwhile, Linda spots Jennings and follows him. She notifies Hooker via dispatch and they proceed to meet her. Jennings, in an effort to tie up "loose ends," shoves her and the hit-man into a closet placing a detonator next to the door. Hooker and Romano arrive in time to defuse the bomb and capture Jennings.
