"Death Strip"
AIRDATE: 03.10.84


WHAT SAID:  

Romano poses as a stripper in a club where the owner and a dancer are suspects in a cocaine ring.

SYNOPSIS:  

While working undercover as a stripper in a club owned by drug dealer Leo Santee, Romano witnesses the murder of his contact Betty Parsons. In her purse, Betty had a picture of cocaine importer Paul Gavin in the possession of pounds of cocaine and millions of dollars in cash. Betty's purse is stolen by Toby Clark who then tries to blackmail Gavin into appointing him his top dealer instead of Santee. Gavin agrees as long as Clark turns over the negative. Clark goes to Betty's home and ransacks it but is unable to find the negative. Later, Kate, Betty's sister, receives a letter from Betty that was written prior to her death, with the negative in it. As she is a deaf-mute, Kate has a neighbor call the police but Clark assaults her and escapes with the negative. Santee informs Hooker of a cocaine drop at the pier. When they arrive, they catch the deal in progress but a gas spill causes an explosion and the suspects escape. Hooker and Romano then visit ex-con Sid Beamer, who they feel had something to do with the drug deal, and they find a photo of five frogmen in his office. One turns out to be Paul Gavin, owner of the warehouse. Since Kate can identify Gavin from the negative she had, they decide to use Beamer's photograph for her to identify Gavin from. They arrive back at Kate's apartment and find her abducted. They learn of another drop happening at the beach and rush down there just in time to rescue Kate and arrest Gavin and his partners.
