That mysterious whispering voice has called Lum with a threat. Now he and Abner try to think of who might have it out for Lum. Could it be a jilted lover, a business rival?
Lum begins to believe that since Abner had no qualms about keeping the money from the pearl, and not wanting to split it, that it could be him.
When Cedric distracts Abner and they leave the store, Miss Emiline phones a grocery order. Squire enters, and is still afraid of those phone threats. Seperately, Lum and Squire plan to set a trap, while Abner and Cedric make their own plans. Suspicions fly, but who’s really behind it all?
