A Navy commander -- a second-generation expert in biological warfare -- disappears, leaving his car on a bridge near Hagerstown, Maryland; Harm and Mac investigate, as does the FBI. The circumstances suggest suicide; then attention turns to a former CIA agent, who appears to have murdered the father of the present victim; finally attention turns to the victim's supervisor and his wife. The last two suspects have curious backgrounds, but not everything is as it appears. Harm solves both the new case and an old one. Meanwhile a woman Marine sergeant, who has filed a petition to allow women to compete with men in boxing, wants to take part in an inter-service tournament; Bud investigates, and the general fights with her in a ring; the general changes his mind.
