A holdup gang steals the car of Frank DeVol who is only concerned about getting the priceless Stradivarius violin that lay in the back seat of the car. The police, though, are just as interested in capturing the murderous robbers who used the popular bandleader's vehicle as a getaway car after a murderous holdup. Blake and Anderson persuade DeVol to use the missing violin as bait to lure the gang out of hiding. Written by David Bassler

Lt. Rod Blake: Oh, hello. I'm Rod Blake, chief investigator for the Nevada state troopers. Now every once in a while a case comes up that has a history - the point of origin sometimes goes back a long way. We just closed the files on the granddaddy of them all. This case goes back 250 years to the town of Cromona, Italy where a man named Antonio Stradivari started making violins for which he would be forever famous. You'll hear about it in a case called, "Fiddle Dee Dead".
