Storyline

Jeff learns that Suzanne is worried about her brother Marcel Fabry, each the only other's relative in the US. She hasn't heard from him in a few weeks and no one seems to know where he is. He worked as a chauffeur for studio costume designer Elaine Lamson, his year long stint in that job which had just come to an end as Mrs. Lamson, whose driver's license was suspended for that year for a drunk driving record, was getting her license back. Coincidentally, her older husband, Mike Lamson, a diamond trader, was killed in a vehicle accident the day Marcel went missing. To help a friend, Jeff decides to investigate on the firm's dime. The investigation goes slowly with Jeff unable to discover much tangible information. He gets Roscoe to snoop around the race track as Marcel was in trouble with the law when he was younger being involved in a race track scam, and he may have turned to his old colleagues.

Wrong theory
19 January 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Jacqueline Beer the French switchboard operator at 77 Sunset Boulevard is like family for Bailey&Spencer so when she asks the guys to check into the whereabouts of her brother who has gone missing Roger Smith takes the case.

The brother went missing after an automobile accident. His employer was killed and the brother who was his chauffeur was missing. The wife Carole Matthews who works at one of the Hollywood studios and she's waiting her insurance check which will have a double indemnity payoff.

There are some elements from the classic Billy Wilder film here. But Jeff Spencer is operating on a wrong theory about the case. It all straightens out in the end.

Over candlelight dinner Roger Smith tells Jacqueline beer how much he'd like to get something going with her. But she's a smart girl and she says in no uncertain terms she wants a husband who works regular hours and not one whose work could get him killed. In fact it nearly does here.

Nice story and I love the part where Roger Smith has to take Edd Byrnes along to a beatnik coffeehouse in order to translate.
