Joe Ezell, GI turned gumshoe, pays the bills by catching philandering husbands for rich dames wanting a divorce. Then Faye Marten darkens his door. She doesn’t quite fit the bill, but she is willing to pay.
A few hours later, Hal Marten, the man Faye hired him to dog, arrives asking for help. The cops believe Hal murdered his now missing wife and Hal wants him to prove his innocence.
But the deeper Joe digs, the more convinced he becomes that Faye and Hal aren’t who they claim to be. The only question is: can he prove it and solve the murder before another victim is knocked off?
