Howard and Andrea are a married couple with problems. She insists on leaving him, but Howard has become a successful businessman on her wealth and refuses to let her have the divorce. Though he lets her have her way for now, he asks for a weekbefore she walks out.
He spends the week looking into modern crime scene investigation, then calls on old friends from his days on the streets as a con man. A modification to an Army .,45 caliber pistol seals his plans for his perfect crime.
Just when it looks as if he might actually get away with it, his gunsmith friend puts him on the spot to blackmail him. Will Howard go for it? Will one murder lead to another? If Howard uses the same modified pistol on his blackmailer, will he be believed in a self defense case?
The Whistler always has the last word for a twist ending on the side for justice.
