That chair born genius, and mountain of a man among detectives is back, when a cute red head comes calling. Mary Dunning is a secretary at the ecological foundation, an agency to study animals. Her boss has been missing for 3 days. After a stranger visited, he disappeared. Is there a legitimate worry? Nero insists Miss Dunning take the case to the police. Though Archie is sympathetic to her, Nero is certain she’s been lying.
Later, Archie reports there’s still a missing persons case. This time it’s Stevens who is back, but Mary who is gone. The bodies begin appearing when Stevens is shot, and Mary is still missing. Dirt emerges regarding the financial matters at the foundation. Who else stands to benefit with a change of leadership at the foundation? Miss Toliver is Steven’s fiancee. Peter Down is the replacement for the vacant position of executive director, and something of a playboy.
A secret love between Laura Toliver, and Peter is exposed. Twists keep coming when Mary is found tied u0 in Peter’s apartment. Yet another character enters the scene when Schwartz has news about Stevens. What does he know about the secret love affair, or Mary? Nero has a few questions to clarify, but he soon has enough to hand the matter over to the cops.
