Dirk and MacDuff's client Mr. Edwards believes his life is in danger - and the Pentagon is to blame. Dirk thinks he's merely a crazed conspiracy theorist but is happy to take his money to investigate the case. However, when Mr. Edwards winds up dead they realize that they've stumbled upon a much more complicated and darker case than they first realized. To MacDuff's disgust and disbelief, Dirk decides that the only solution to this case lies in investigating a completely different one - a simple case of a woman who believes her husband is having an affair and asks Dirk to prove it. MacDuff's suggestions that this investigation isn't helping them find Mr. Edwards killer and evade capture by the Pentagon falls on deaf ears -but when the connections between the two cases become apparent, Dirk's unconventional approach to detective work proves revelatory.
