Plot Overview

Terry and Willie aren't particularly thrilled when Ryker assigns them to provide security at a telethon for the hospital, and when a country singer performing at the telethon is almost killed by a speeding car with Tennessee plates, they debate whether it's an attempt on his life or a publicity stunt. When a second attempt is made on the singer's life, they are now certain that someone has it in for him. They discover that two brothers from Tennessee are out to kill him, blaming him for their sister's death during childbirth.
