As a way to pay off some poker debts, Magnum takes from a senior colleague the case (for 40% minus expenses) of a man whose fiancee's grave hit and run accident shows she underwent extensive plastic surgery as crowning part of an identity change. Even after the client cancels the job, Magnum works out why: she was involved in a jeweler's robbery and has a daughter, whom he and Higgins take in as protection, while smoking out the killer, in the process winning the respect -not sympathy- of new police detective Gordon Katsumoto.
