The tourist favorite, Fisherman’s Wharf, is at the center of Sam’s latest caper. Rosalie and Louie were to be married next week, but Louie has turned up missing. Dominic tries to tell his story, but is frequently cut short by the loud and emotional outcries of the Italian family. What really happened on the crab boat? Though Dominick’s story should acquit him, the family is showing no mercy in believing he’s guilty.
Sam is observant enough to know that Rosalie is upset, but not over the loss of Louie. The trouble is that Sam only has theory, and no evidence, motive, or other hard evidence. What’s an overworked detective to do? Go home and go to bed. A phone caller claims to be Louie. Will Sam drop the case if he can prove it? The meeting in the foggy night along the bay could go badly for Sam.
Warming up and drying out after a swim in the bay, Sam breaks the news that Louie may still be alive. How will the family be shaken up after hearing the news? Stories reveal new clues, and a possible motive behind the shady doings. A witness would clench the deal for Sam. A trap puts the pressure on that makes a killer crack.
