Bunny Hopper is half of a stand up comedy act who were once on the brink of stardom but are relegated to playing to small crowds in social clubs. When Bunny collapses on stage, everyone assumes a heart attack but the post-mortem reveals that he had ingested rat poison. Despite his age, Bunny was quite a ladies man. Not only was he married, he had a long list of lady friends all over the country with three regular girlfriends in Willesden alone, all of whom were at the club the night he died. With most of the squad away on a special assignment, Dangerous and his friend Mod start interviewing all of the suspects in the case only to come to the realization that he's got it all wrong.
