Lieutenant Columbo investigates the disappearance of magazine company owner Dian Hunter. Columbo suspects foul play and believes the co-owner of the magazines Sean Brantley is responsible. Columbo unearths several telling clues and all he has to do is find the body. But, is it possible that the great detective has made a mistake?
