Synopsis
A fingerprint at a crime scene reveals that Shoulders, one of Tracy's previous foes, is still alive. Shoulders has married someone who knows nothing of his previous life. Shoulders kills his partner and then the fence who was to buy stolen diamonds from him. When his step-daughter locks herself in his brush sample case, Tracy and Pat are tipped off by the brush company when they are contacted for a key. Shoulders sees the police cars in front of his house and flees, only to have an accident in his car. He takes shelter in an antique store, where the owner helps him.
