    7.5
    Russ and Lynn Paterno are reunited for the first time in 10 years. He is shot by a man right next to a baseball game where Hooker and crew are playing. Hooker jumps on the car of the fleeing shooter. He is thrown off and the killer gets away. There is a group called P.F.A.D.W. "People for a Decent World", who want to kill anyone that gets in the way of his agenda. Turns out he is a reformed mobster who is helping out the F.B.I. with some inside information. Stacey goes undercover as a nurse while Russ is recovering. Hooker finds a link to the shooting. There was a lawyer, porn star, radio talk show host & foreign lobbyist who had also been shot recently. He goes to talk to his daughter. She is upset about what her father was in the past. She wants out and nothing to do with the situation. They go to see the former porn star that was shot. Her name is Christine(Lydia Cornell-She is wearing a blue leotard and looks great in it!). She says the shooter was a fanatic who yelled "slut" at her. Meanwhile the shooter comes back to the hospiral for another try. He misses and Hooker chases him, but he gets away. Hooker finds out from the tapes of the radio host that the P.F.A.D.W. head man called in and threatened the host. He calls a friend that knew about the group. He tells Hooker they are survivalists with likes of a military setup. They are located at an abandoned gunnery. Hooker visits and tries to join and the leader rejects him. They raid the area but are too late. They go after Paterno at his house. Hooker and crew stop them. Lynn Paterno decides to stay around and try to get closer to her dad. (Note:This story has been done too many times with a radical military group going after people they don't like. That is why it gets a lower rating. At least they called them radicals & fanatics instead of the usual "Right Wing Extremists/Militants" group. That gets a little old after a while)moreless
