Millionaire Bo Williamson returns from two months in Europe and finds an unpleasant surprise: his second wife, Jennifer, has financed a new town construction project. Incensed, Bo confronts Elliot Markham, the architect with the original idea. Shortly thereafter, Bo disappears again, and it looks as if he's off on another European trip, but his first wife, Goldie, doesn't think so and - despite the lack of a body - gets Lt. Columbo to look into it for her. It doesn't take the detective long to sense something is indeed amiss, but where's the corpse? Written by

You really would like to see me dead, wouldn't ya? Well, I'll tell you somethin'. It wouldn't count for much.

No, no. It don't mean a thing because, you see, when I die, all of my money goes into trust. Oh, Jennifer will get her share every year - you can count on that - but there won't be any cash to build cities with.
