Following the untimely death of his young wife, NYPD plainclothes detective Jack Shannon (Kevin Dobson) moved to San Francisco with his ten-year-old son, Johnny (Charlie Fields).

The move provided a change of scenery to help him get over his grief and, since his wife’s parents – Paul (Al Ruscio) and Irene (Karen Kondazian) Locatelli – lived there, it gave him some help raising Johnny too.

With the help of some of his former superiors in New York, Jack obtained a position with the SFPD Special Squad of Investigators.

Norm White (William Lucking) was his partner and Lt. Moraga (Michael Durrell) was their immediate superior.
