Columnist and socialite Mary K. Davis gets herself killed. Was it her shrill voice that prompted someone to do her in? Or was it something the columnist said? Maybe her politician-husband didn't appreciate her refusal to give him a divorce. Or perhaps that doctor didn't like it when Mary threatened to expose his illegal baby-selling scheme.

Perry and Della feel it's an important enough issue to tamper with the evidence in defense of Leona Walsh, the nurse on trial for the crime. Burger's out to put Della on the stand and get Perry for tampering.
