Storyline

Ex-madam Maybelle Cheseboro returns to Sparta to set up a phone-sex operation under the guise of a communications business. The City Council objects and Lonnie goes to check on the enterprise. One of the most vocal opponents, city planner Drew Ward, takes one of Maybelle's women, Jessica Lund, to a motel where she dies of an epileptic seizure. Lindy, who sat next to Jessica at the phone shop, tries to extort money from Ward. Chief Forbes investigates while Sheriff Gillespie renews an old acquaintance with Maybelle. Written by richardann
