When a policeman is murdered for interrupting an organized-crime transaction, McGarrett hauls in the killer -- only to see him walk when an FBI agent investigating a much larger organized-crime ring offers the killer immunity from prosecution if he'll testify. McGarrett protests strenuously, but he and the Fed are forced to team up when the syndicate sends a hit man after the informant -- and anyone else who gets in his way, including McGarrett and the Federal officer.

This show's production number, #0725, indicates it was filmed very late in the season (although apparently before "The Silk Trap," which aired two weeks earlier). Since filming went at least into December 1977, this show and "The Silk Trap" were apparently rushed in post-production. In summer-1978 reruns, this was the next-to-last show aired before "A Death in the Family." See more
