In the airportMarlowe joins the cops to stop his man before his plane takes off. In flashback, Philip recounts how he was hired by an old man who lay dieing in a hospital. His son, Jack Schiller had been blinded by the promise of fast money the gangsters offered. It’s up to Marlowe to find him, and reunite the son to the father.
Chasing down the slim leads at hand, Marlowe finds a thump on the head as he begins to get too close for comfort.

How can the club manager, Holland, help Philip? The propositions get dangerous as they have Marlowe playing on both sides of the fence.
The stakes are driven up when George Martini is found dead in his penthouse apartment. Can Marlowe get the killer, and deliver him up to the cops on a silver platter? Has Jack just been the fall guy? The truth explodes, the chase is on, and we find ourselves where we came in, at the airport.
Will Jack see his proud father again? Will Philip keep his promise to deliver the bad guy? Somethings in life don’t always work out the way we expect, but in radio dramas, justice manages to find its way.
