A man introduces himself to a hotel desk clerk as Howard Conrad and is told that his room has been paid for. In the room, C.Y. Hyung is waiting to empty a shotgun into the man's face. Days later, Evans is wakened by a friendly warning that his publisher, Helen Rowan Randolph, is in Hong Kong. She's an old love of Evans' and Howard Conrad was the cause of many quarrels between them in the days when Glenn, Helen, and Conrad were reporting the Korean War. Now Helen is pressing the Hong Kong police to solve the Conrad murder. Evans tells Insp. Campbell to suspect anyone Conrad ever met. When he finds out that Helen trusted Conrad with $250,000 in aid for Hong Kong refugees, he is exasperated--it's another of her bullheaded crusades. He calls her a modern Lady Godiva who wears clothes, a Carrie Nation with a typewriter. She calls him an insufferable, intransigent, insensitive, incurable male. They've missed each other. But Helen wants to recover the aid money, last seen in Howard's company...
