Simon...you can thank your kid for saving your life.
The story begins with a father calling his son...telling him he will be home a bit late for work. However, the guy doesn't show and the boy (Lee Harcourt Montgomery) soon arrives at the police station to file a missing person report. However, it's only been a day and the detectives try to shoo the kid off...though when Kojak sees this, he takes action and promises to investigate. After all, though the course of season one, you can see that Kojak is tough...but he has a heart of gold. Unfortunately for the missing man, he's being held captive and his days are numbered unless the police locate him quickly.
This is a pretty exciting and enjoyable episode. What I really appreciate is Lee Harcourt Montgomery's acting. While one book listed him among the worst child actors in history, he was just fine here. Additionally, the story is engaging and interesting...a nice way to end a very good first season.
