When a large trunk left in the basement by the previous owner - an accused murderer - is found vandalized, Fred Palmer hires Mike Shayne to investigate. Mike tries to learn if the mysterious goings-on have anything to do with the disappearance of the beautiful women whose portrait hangs over the fireplace. Written by

This is *his* mother.
