A petty thief is caught by a beautiful woman while ransacking a guest room in a Lake Tahoe resort. She threatens to call the police unless the crook agrees to murder her estranged lover. The thief counters that shooting men isn't his line, but offers to find a suitable man for the job and asks Lt. Rod Blake to pose as the killer-for-hire. Written by

Lt. Rod Blake
Hello, I'm Rod Blake, chief investigator for the Nevada state troopers. One major crime cause that never ceases to amaze peace officers it's how many people think elimination of another person will solve all their problems. This weighty thought came to me while lying on my back after one such intended victim whose life I was trying to prolong clipped me on the chin. You'll meet him in the company of a pretty widow in a case called, "So Early in the Mourning."
