At a strip joint, Paula Bennett and David Burke are holding the kid. Paula is a stripper and she does a quick routine to show off her nice body. David tells the kid he is his son. The next day Hooker finds out from the parents that her ex-husband is a possibility for the kidnapping. David and two guys hit a jewelry store. Hooker chases them and they catch two of them. One of the guys tells Hooker that David Burke is the third guy. He tells him they are going to Mexico to sell the jewels. They find out about his girlfriend and they talk to one of the strippers that tells them they are in Mexico. Hooker goes to Mexico to find him. He talks with a friend before he leaves. His brother named Miguel Gomez is a cop in Mexico, and is going to help him out. David is confronted by Paula in Mexico. She is upset that he just took the kid to spite his ex wife. He slaps her and leaves. Hooker meets with Miguel and they go to work. He meets with his snitch Luis. He tells them maybe his sister Catalina might know. She tells him to see a man named Madera. The next scene shows David selling his jewels to Madera. Miguel gives Hooker a gun in case there is trouble. Hooker shows up first and then Miguel shows up. They chase David and they end up finding him at the hotel where he is staying. They go in and after a shootout, Hooker takes him down. The next day Hooker returns the boy to his family. Great episode and great guest starring role for Henry Darrow as the Miguel, the man who helps Hooker in Mexico.moreless
