A man writes with a problem that might be better suited for a psychiatrists couch than for George Valentine.
Still, George is intrigued enough by finding out who Sylvia is that he takes the case. Even after he and Brooksie interview the man, and meet Sylvia, it only stirs up more questions for George. What kind of hold does Sylvia have over this man? He is complimentary towards her, but she seems resentful in turn.
Word comes in from the cops that the man has committed suicide. All indications point to suicide, but what kind of respectable detective show would this be to let it ride at just a plain old suicide?
Is George holding back on evidence? Why would he do such a thing? Dramatic purposes of course, we need to fill up the entire half hour time slot.
George goes around interviewing folks who are involved, trying to gather evidence that is more solid. He confronts Sylvia in an attempt to put on the pressure. Will she crack? Whill George learn anything, other than getting death threats?
There seems to be a clue in a picture that George lifted from the dead man’s house, now Sylvia wants to get it back at any price. Meanwhile, Brooksie learns some important facts about that photograph. At the big meeting of the characters, the final inquiry of the cops, the truth comes out that it was really a murder.
With Georges help, the cops are able to nail the right killer.
