Margo Bentley's about her experiences hobnobbing with powerful people worldwide just might be a best-seller. Concerned about advance publicity, she advises her agent that she'll continue working in a hotel, under an alias. Hours later, she's dead, apparently of liver cirrhosis.

One of Margo's friends gives Quincy the New York telephone number of her literary agent, but Quincy finds that avenue closed - by the days earlier death of that agent, apparently from liver cirrhosis...

The shot of Quincy looking up from his microscope during the series opening credits is taken from this episode. Also, the shot of Carol Lynley slowly going down the steps in a blue dress (when her face isn't shown) also comes from this episode. In effect this means she appears in every episode of Quincy, even though it isn't obvious. See more
