The manager of an apartment building is beaten to death with a hammer. Clues at the scene point to a man named 'Fred', who was playing cards with the victim. Fred has fled, possibly in another tenant's car. Later, Friday gets a call notifying him that Frederick Tosca and his girlfriend are in custody in Arizona. Extradition papers are prepared and Friday, Gannon, and Policewoman Dorothy Miller head to Cottonwood. Tosca admits nothing, but a search of the stolen car turns up a key piece of evidence.
