Starsky & Hutch Fans
In theory, this seems like a great episode: a cruise, the guys locked on a ship with a murderer (why does that seem vaguely like an Agatha Christie novel?), beautiful women, exotic locals, and--oh, wait--Lynne Marta, too? Not to mention that Starsky and Hutch look like they are having lots of fun as Hack and Zack, driving crazy fast in a dune buggy, and getting all sweaty carrying a bomb. Well, maybe that part wasn't fun but it's exciting to watch.
There's the problem for me, at least--the sum of the parts don't add up to a cohesive whole. This may be a two parter but there's something lacking. And why doesn't anyone want to write about it? Maybe my search parameters were off but I couldn't find any stories set on the ship (and I know there is at least one cause I read it in a zine, but of course, cannot remember title or author.) So here's mine--set after the cruise!

Set after Murder At Sea, Starsky and Hutch arrive back at the canal side cottage only hours before an arsonist lobs a molotov cocktail through the window of Hutch's home.
