Rocky’s old friend Peter Preli comes to Jim requesting help because his granddaughter Houston has been kidnapped. Not wanting to involve the police, Pete is prepared to pay the ransom. He goes home and Jim proceeds to Houston Preli’s home but is stopped by some goons warning him to stay out of it. Jim finds Houston’s house has been knocked around, with evidence of a fight. Jim goes to Peter’s but finds him dead. Lieutenant Diehl tells Jim that Pete appeared to have no money, so why was he hit for ransom. Rocky says Pete always gave the illusion of wealth. Jim takes Diehl and Dennis to Houston’s home only to find everything has been fixed. Jim is arrested.
