A knockout heiress is clubbed to death with a poker while flirting on the phone. Her uptight sister ('Katherine Bard') employs Gunn to locate her. The late extroverted heiress worked for a florist, apparently luring wealthy men, and had frequent-buyer status at a lonely hearts bureau. In a nightspot where guitarist Laurindo Almeida is playing, Gunn digs up a tip on a gigolo working the missing sister. Written by
A woman comes into "Mother's" and hires Gunn to find her missing sister (who is shown being murdered in the opening sequence.)
Along the way of solving the case, Pete visits a couple of eccentrics: a florist shop owner who had employed the murdered/missing woman and then the president of a "Lonely Hearts Club who was very familiar with the leading suspect in the case and one of the sisters, a "musclebound" egotist named Ramon.
After the latter visit, Mr. Gunn gets thoroughly beaten up in alley and is told to stay off the case. At the police station, where we find Gunn (without a scratch despite a brutal beating), he proceeds to go over the case with Det. Harmon (Willard Sage) who is filling in for the absent Lt. Jacoby. This was the first episode of this series, I believe, in which Herschel Bernardi was absent.
The story turns out to a have quite a twist to it which I won't divulge here. Please buy the DVDs so A & E will make more of these seasons available. As of now, none are planned.
