A client named George Hewitt hires Joe Mannix to help find a man whom Hewitt claims has been harassing his wife, such as by accosting her in a taxicab in Chicago. Hewitt then speeds off from their meeting and is killed in a car chase with another vehicle. Mannix tries to discuss Hewitt's concerns with his widow only to find that she denies many of the things Hewitt had told Mannix -- such as never having been in Chicago, and not recognizing the man from a photograph.

When Mrs. Hewitt is given the envelope with her husband's effects from the car crash, the envelope shows the date of his death as October 20, 1970. She later tells Joe Mannix that she and her husband had been married only about a month before this death. Yet when Peggy tells Joe information that she obtained about the Hewitts, she tells him that they were married on April 7 - which would place the date of the crash as sometime in May, not October.
