In New Orleans, a chance meeting with a beautiful blonde from his past proves dangerous to Stu and J.R., who's traveling with him. When J.R. trails the blonde to find out more about her, he winds up getting taken hostage by an old enemy of Stu's from his OSS days. He uses the parking lot attendant to lure Stu to come back to New Orleans, so he can exact revenge on the private eye, who got him imprisoned for treason.

The cop that offers to help Stu with his case is none other than 'Cal' Calhoun, who left the force to form a private detective agency with Rex Randolph, who was briefly a part of Bailey and Spencer Investigations when he moved west. Their adventures were chronicled in the 1959-60 series Bourbon Street Beat. Cal returned to the force after dissolving the partnership with Rex.
