The movie ads heralded “Wham! Bam! Here Comes Pam” and with that Pam Grier is back in action as Friday Foster.

Why is Friday the target on the hit list? What does she know? Teaming with private detective Colt Hawkins (Yaphet Kotto, Alien, Blue Collar), the search for answers will lead them to a startling and action-packed finale.
