Andrew Durbin returns to Cabot Cove, on parole after serving 20 for a murder he says he did not commit. As a college student 20 years before, he had been hitchhiking on the outskirts of the town when he got a lift from someone driving an expensive two-seater sports car. They were forced off the road by an erratic driver coming in the opposite direction and the driver of the sports car was seriously injured. Durbin went off to find help and when he returned, he found the driver dead and later learns there is $100,000 in bearer bonds missing. He's now returned seeking to find the killer and thief. As for Jessica, she finds herself in the unpleasant situation of having to investigate friends and neighbors. Written by

Andrew Durbin agrees with Bill Hampton to collect his car at 21:00, but on the night of Bill's murder Durbin's airtight alibi is that he was eating out from 20:00 to 23:00. No explanation is given as to why he didn't go back to the garage to collect it (the sheriff mentions the following morning that the keys are still in the garage office so he couldn't have collected it earlier).
