WHAT SAID:  

A murder investigation leads Hooker to a drug-money laundering ring.

SYNOPSIS:  

While jogging along the beach one morning, Hooker finds the dead body of a young girl floating in the water. When she is labeled "Jane Doe," Hooker becomes determined to get to the bottom of her death. The coroner explains her death as unnatural, quite possibly a homicide. Among the girl's belongings, Hooker turns up a key and a phone book. He begins calling all the numbers in the book until he comes to the name Grant. Hooker makes a call to this number. The man who answers the phone hangs up on Hooker and he believes the man is linked to the girl's death. The man, Grant Chandler, is afraid Hooker will learn too much, so he sends someone to kill Hooker. Luckily, Hooker survives the ambush. Hooker returns to the beach and runs into artist Alice Danner who had taken a photo of the girl which she gives to Hooker. With the photo, the girl is identified as Susan Fairchild. From there, Hooker locates her apartment and finds some letters from Eddie Beal who was corresponding with Susan from jail. Eddie tells Hooker that Susan worked for Grant Chandler. Eddie also tells him that Chandler had him set up by Roy Downing to get him out of Susan's life. Hooker goes to Chandler's home and finds that Susan's key fits Chandler's cabana. There he runs into Downing who confesses and agrees to testify against Chandler. With enough evidence against him, Chandler is arrested for the murder of Susan Fairchild.
