Private investigators Frank Pavlicek and daughter Nicole receive an urgent message from their friend and fellow falconer Jake Toronto about “a death in the family.” The death turns out to be the murder of his prize peregrine falcon Jazzman. Toronto worries that a vivacious female chef he helped ease out of a job is the culprit and that he may have done wrong by both her and her employer.
