SYNOPSIS

Mike Longstreet was a New Orleans insurance company investigator. While on a case he had the double misfortune of having his wife killed and his eyesight destroyed by people determined that he not solve the case. Despite his injury, Mike refused to quit the business. With his German Shepherd guide dog Pax, to help him get around, and and electronic cane to judge distances, Longstreet remained a remarkably successful investigator. If anything, blindness sharpened his other senses and analytical skills. Mike's girl Friday, Nikki, was his biggest booster; his insurance company friend, Duke Paige, worked with him on many cases.

Kung Fu expert Bruce Lee appeared in this series as Longstreet’s self-defense instructor.
