A little old lady, Miss Baubanina Babbage, engages the laconic L.A. private investigator Mike Faraday to find out what has happened to her share dividends in a property company. However, Mike soon finds more sinister things beneath the innocent facade of the Rio Solado Corporation. Then two professional contract men call with a mission - to cement Mike up in the piers of a new motorway spur.
