Tony is sharing a bill with his friend, singer Julie Carter, for a run at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. Julie is recovering from physical and emotional trauma from being in a fire two years ago, which almost killed her. As such, this performance is considered the beginning of her comeback, its success or failure which could determine if she makes it in the business. After the successful first show, Julie goes missing. A note found in her dressing room addressed to Julie's manager and boyfriend Ray Weaver indicates that she was abducted. The kidnappers eventually telephone with a $500,000 ransom request, implying they will kill her if the ransom is not paid or if the police are called. Based on general history of kidnapping cases, Tony and Max do call in the Las Vegas police, Lt. Phil Corcoran, and plan not to pay the ransom - which they plan not to tell Ray, who only wants to do what he thinks will bring Julie back, which to him means paying - but enact a plot to pretend paying to flush out the kidnappers, with Tony being the one to drop off the supposed moneys. In trying to find a still safe and alive Julie, Tony has two puzzles to solve: (1) decipher what he believes was a coded message from Julie as to who is behind the plot, and (2) discover who is the mole among their team as the kidnappers seem to know a little too much about what's going on.- Written by Huggo
