Egotistical author Travis Marshall discovers the unmarked grave of heir Brian Henderson. Marshall is promoting his find to the media, much to the annoyance of McGarrett & Co., who have re-opened an investigation. Brian Marshall has been missing for seven years. Five-O has to reconstruct what happened to the heir, with no help from Marshall or Agatha Henderson, the wealthy grandmother of the dead man. The case turns out to be an elaborate jigsaw puzzle for McGarrett, which is further complicated when Marshall turns up dead.

James Oleson's character is seen in the beginning of the episode carrying a red, yellow, blue and green umbrella. It may not have been done deliberately, but that type of umbrella was seen frequently as a symbol in Patrick McGoohan's series of "The Prisoner" in 1967. The character portrayed by Oleson plays an egotistical type who is always shouting harassment from the police. This is similar behavior pulled by the government ruling the village in The Prisoner, the leader of which (Number 2,) is often seen standing close to, or carrying an umbrella which appears to be identical to the one carried by Oleson in this episode.

Harassment! That's what I said. Ever since I wrote... this book. Exposing the inefficiency of the average police department, I have been subjected to harassment by authorities wherever I go.
Det. Steve McGarrett
Can you believe that ? Look at that umbrella.
