Overview… San Francisco-based detective with a new mission: bringing down a dangerous thief, Albert Ganz, who recently escaped imprisonment. Normally, Jack would choose to go-it-alone, but the difficult nature of the case means he has to call on assistance. Enter Reggie Hammond, a smart-mouthed, sassy convict who formerly served as Ganz’s partner. Now Cates and Hammond must work together to bring Albert down. Unfortunately, they’re not very good at teamwork.
Personality… tough and stoic, Jack Cates is a no-nonsense sort of fellow. He doesn’t like emotions or trouble. But, he keeps getting embroiled in situations that force him to deal with both. His lover, Elaine, is urging him to show a little more sensitivity to her needs and Reggie is proving to be quite a wearisome companion as well.
