When someone tries to kill a friend of Perry's who has discovered a lost gold mine, Paul is called on to disguise himself as a prospector and act as bait for the potential killer. But while Paul is looking for rocks, he finds a body instead.

This episode is unusual in that there is no trial--just a coroner's inquest. Therefore, there is no defendant.
