Bonded messenger Henry Wigram is betrayed and murdered by John Grolier, his accomplice in a plot to steal a $20,000 payroll. Planning to abscond with all the money, Grolier is unpleasantly surprised to learn that Wigram had previously handed the money off to his wife Alma before the two men met to stage a fake "robbery". Dan Mathews and his officers are surprised when Alma seems more distracted than upset when she learns that her husband is missing and they deduce that she knows more about the situation than she is letting on. Alma underestimates Grolier's ruthlessness when she tries to use the money as leverage to learn her husband's whereabouts. When Dan finds Alma's murdered body at the Maple Leaf Motel, he realizes that Grolier has probably gone to the Wigram home to search for the money. Dan heads quickly to the Wigram home, where an armed confrontation with the frustrated and desperate Grolier becomes inevitable. Written by Sam Spear

The bonded messenger company's gray sedan is clearly shown bearing license plate MPF686, and Chief Dan Mathews takes a phone call, after which he describes said plate as "Mary, Paul, Frank, 6, 8, 6". However, later in the story, Ralph Wilson tells Mathews that Henry Wigram's personal red convertible has the same license plate number: MPF686. Still later in the story, said red convertible is clearly shown bearing a different plate numbered MPF669. See more »
