Personal notice: Danger is his stock in trade. If your life’s going into a tailspin, call on George Valentine. Write for full details.
George responds to a letter from a concerned mom. Her boy is involved in the mob, and she’s afraid that something will be going down that will put him into terrible danger. She tells George of a code phrase that her son used to use to let her know that he was in trouble. The son used that phrase in his latest letter.
George talks to the son, Richard, to get his side of the story. Wow, he’s not such a nice guy, and probably deserves what he has coming from the mob. He may not like what his life has become, but he’s resigned to meet his fate.
What can George do about the situation? George appeals to his cop friend to lock up the son as a protection measure, but will the cops go for it? Can George help pin a wrap on the mobster to get him off the street? Things get interesting when mom is kidnapped, and held by the mobster as a way of getting his man out of jail, and back under his control.
Valentine is forced to play ball with the mobsters, and let the innocent mom go free. A meeting is arranged to show up with the son, and arrange a trade. Will George pull a fast one to set both mom and son free?
When the cops learn how bad the son was, his criminal record, and how deep he was in with the mob, they want him back.
The crosses, and double crosses seem to cascade on forever. It’s going to take some hard decisions from George to set things straight, and there won’t be any winners.
Gunplay results, and the son makes his last shot at redeeming himself with mom. In epilog, Brooksie and George share a Valentines Day moment.
