Baretta meets a parole officer friend (John Shockley) returning from Mexico. Just after telling Baretta that he had seen a former parolee alive and well (in spite of being declared a suicide by drowning a few months earlier), Shockley is the victim of a deliberate hit-and-run. Baretta encounters official resistance to reopening the case, a befuddled grieving mother and a violent gangland attempt to find the "dead" woman and her accomplice.
Did You Know?
While part of the catch of the series is Baretta going undercover in disguise (carried over from the series Toma), this episode has more than usual. A few of them include an African American pimp, an African American massage therapist, a cowboy and a hippie playing guitar. See more
