Honey and Sam find themselves enmeshed in the world of espionage when they investigate the case of a disgraced trucker named Rocky Hansen.
Rocky had been an employee of Gage Electronics, a company with a contract to supply missile parts to the U.S. Government.
One evening, while transporting a classified consignment, Rocky stopped at a roadside cafe for dinner.
Ten minutes after resuming his journey, he began to feel drowsy and pulled over to the side of the road. He awoke five hours later to find himself still at the same location, but with a pounding headache.
Because he was late making the delivery - and after a fellow Gage employee named McWhirter claimed that he had seen Rocky at the truck stop, lacing his coffee with alcohol - the trucker was sacked.
With his reputation in ruins, Rocky has since been unable to find work.
Setting out to clear the young trucker, Honey and Sam approach McWhirter in order to question him, but the man takes flight.
Tracing the fugitive witness to to a village in Mexico, the two P.I.'s arrive in time to see him gunned down in the back room of a bar.
Barely escaping murder at the hands of McWhirter's killer, Honey and Sam pursue the only other leads they have: Honey takes a job as a waitress in the truck stop where Rocky was undoubtedly given a sedative, while Sam secures work as a driver at Gage Electronics.
Searching McWhirter's locker at the plant, Sam finds a jacket which was custom-made for a wealthy man named Raven.
Honey visits Raven and questions him, but the man states simply that the jacket was one of many out-of-fashion items he had given to a thrift store.
In truth, however, Raven is a member of the espionage ring responsible for Rocky's predicament.
Realising that only someone working at Gage Electronics could have given Honey the jacket, Raven's confederates soon identify Sam as the source of Honey's information, and a plot to eliminate him is set in motion
