Near Kansas City, Richard Kimble reads a want ad cryptically informing him about the murder of his wife Helen, with a message to phone Eleanor Burnett, the daughter of John Burnett, his defense attorney who is no longer alive. Ellie and her mother Ada had hired a private detective to help find the one-armed man and he believes he now has, but when Kimble arrives to a rendezvous with Ellie she informs him that the one-armed man they discovered had died in a fire. Kimble is devastated but checks the story himself and believes it to be true. However the private detective does some more checking and finds the one-armed man who died was incarcerated the night of Helen Kimble's murder, meaning Kimble can still find his wife's killer. Ellie, however, wants Kimble for herself and withholds this information - and faces arrest as Lt. Gerard, a family friend of the Burnetts, has learned from a reluctant Ada of Ellie's rendezvous with Kimble and her plan to fly him out of the country. Written by Michael Daly

Plot summary
15 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ellie Burnett (actress Suzanne Pleshette), the daughter of Kimble's now-deceased defense attorney, has for years been in love with Kimble. Lieutenant Gerard has long been a personal friend of the Burnett family and still dines with Ellie and her mother Ada on occasion.

Ellie tries to reach Kimble by putting a personal ad in several newspapers asking R.K. to contact E.B. for information about September 17 (the date of Helen Kimble's death). Kimble notices the ad and calls her. She says a private detective has uncovered information about the one-armed man, and she wants to meet Kimble in St. Louis. Unfortunately, Gerard has also noticed the ad, and he tracks Ellie hoping to find Kimble.

Kimble faces further danger when Ellie deceives him about the detective's findings as part of her plot to trick Kimble into running away with her to Brazil.
