Rookie patrolman, Dan Garret. Loved by everyone, but suspected of no one of being the Blue Beetle.
Part 1: Trouble with jewel robberies plagues an upscale resort hotel, located on an island out in the river channel. It has city officials up in arms. Dan Garret goes on special assignment to spend a few days in the luxury setting to investigate. As the thefts continue, it becomes apparent that an insider might be doing it. The Blue Beetle shows up and is accused of the robberies, but he has other reasons for making his appearance. When the Beetle makes a hasty exit, the show comes to an end. Who might be doing the stealing? Where would they be hiding their loot? There aren’t many ways to escape the island resort.
Part 2: After the thefts, at the ritzy resort, neither the jewels or the thieves have been found. When the Blue Beetle made his exit, he had a handle on who the robber was. Now he returns as Dan Garret to keep up appearances. Dan’s partner Mike, seems to be onto something, as far as the motive behind the mystery, but all the clues aren’t quite in yet. Doing more poking around, the Blue Beetle confirms how the jewels are being removed from the island. This is definitely a mystery that is solved more by wits than superhero ability, although the Blue Betle does call on his nifty gadgets to spring the trap on the gang of thieves.
In the end, the Blue Beetle saves the day, but gives all the credit to his police partner, Mike. Such a nice guy.
