Storyline

Mike is hired to track down a man's missing girlfriend. The client tells Hammer that he just returned from South America, but his pasty complexion belies his claim of three years in the tropics. Hammer learns that the man is really an ex-con out on parole. Mike can understand his client hiding his criminal past, but what he really can't understand is why a powerful television anchor like Butler Tilton would hire an inept private eye like Andy Anderson to tail the former bank robber. Written by David Bassler

Quotes

Mike Hammer: [narrating] Maybe Jack Cordell had just come back from South America. Maybe - anything's possible - even to spend three sunny years in the South America and come back looking like boiled white sauce, but I could think of a place where it would be more likely to spend three years and come away with a pallor. If I was right, I could learn a lot more about my client in the ID section of headquarters than I could sitting talking to him for hours.
