"Chinatown"
AIRDATE: 10.15.83

WHAT SAID:  

Chinatown is the scene of a thriving black market in guns and, for Hooker, a place where more than memory links him to the past.

SYNOPSIS:  

Responding to a call in Chinatown, Hooker, Romano, Stacy and Corrigan arrive at a warehouse where a cockfight has been in progress. During the fight, three armed associates rush in and hold up the crowd. One suspect winds up dead and the other two taken into custody. Hooker, taking a clue from a previous investigation in Chinatown, checks out the Mai Ling Trading Company. He was very close to Mai Ling many years ago, but learns that she has since passed away. Instead he speaks with her daughter Nancy, who was at the cockfight with her boyfriend, George Po. She claims she knows nothing about the illegal guns that have been showing up in various sections of Chinatown. Her father, Chow Dok Khan makes it clear that he does not like Hooker. After some checking, Hooker learns that Khan has been out of the country and his recent reappearance coincides with the guns appearing on the streets. Hooker finally connects Khan and Nancy's boyfriend, George Po, to the illegal gun operation. They try to arrange a fake buy, but Khan spots the police cars and escapes. Meanwhile, Nancy has discovered her father's cache of weapons. Khan catches her in the act, and takes her hostage. Hooker arrives and after a struggle, manages to overcome Khan and arrests him.
