Small-time racketeer Vince Garrow is found murdered and investigation reveals that he was providing information to crime expose writer Sam Dahlquist. Dan Mathews deduces that Dahlquist may know the killer's identity and orders an intensive search for the reporter. Racketeer Jake Mallek, the subject of Dahlquist's article, learns that the reporter often does his writing at a remote cabin in the Silver Canyon mountain resort area and he sends his henchmen Greer and Yeager to kill him. Dan and Sergeant Walters finally learn Dahlquist's whereabouts from his daughter Joyce. When they arrive, they have only seconds to prevent Greer and Yeager from setting the cabin ablaze with Dahlquist trapped inside. Written by
A Highway Patrolman issues a routine traffic citation to Vince Garrow. Garrow, who has ties to a big time racketeer is soon later found murdered. The Patrolman reports that Garrow had a passenger and an investigation reveals that the passenger and owner of the car Garrow was driving was Sam Dahlquist, a magazine writer specializing in crime exposés. Dahlquist's life is in danger as the racketeer, Jake Mallek, is determined to prevent Dahlquist from finishing the story he's doing on Mallek's criminal activities. Mallek's henchman Yeager ( who drives a beautiful 1957 Chevy Be Air) goes after Dahlquist. Fortunately, Chief Matthews is also looking for Dahlquist and prevents his murder from happening. At the end, Matthews tells Dahlquist "You write on dangerous subjects, next time let's collaborate." Stuart Whitman makes one of his 12 appearance as Sgt. Walters. Whitman was in a season one episode as a different character. As to be expected from this series, this was a well written and entertaining episode.
