After Roy Comstock's wife, Valerie, divorces him getting a house, the boat and $350,000, his company Comstock Construction seems to go bankrupt. Soon after, Roy Comstock disappears with company executive Peter Brent left holding the bag. Brent had put up some of his land, 50 acres of prime oceanfront property near Cape Canaveral, as collateral for a company loan. Comstock's lawyer, F.J. Weatherby, has no idea where Roy Comstock might be and Peter approaches Perry Mason for assistance. Peter locates Comstock and they argue but Roy has left a suicide note saying he will drown himself and is now believed dead. Peter was seen jumping on the boat with Roy as Roy leaves the dock. It's all a scam being perpetrated by Roy and Valerie Comstock. When Roy is found dead however, it's Peter Brent who is charged with his murder and Perry defends him.
