  • The McMillans' maid Mildred is serving on the jury deliberating on the fate of San Francisco football star Luke Johnson, but one night she is attacked in her hotel. The jury is moved to a different hotel and in their vote for a decision, jurors vote to acquit Luke Johnson - except for juror Tom Ryan. Later that night when Jerry, a guard, gets a phone message for Tom Ryan from his stepmother Virginia Ryan, he and another guard go to Tom Ryan's hotel room, and find him shot to death. McMillan must now investigate two murders - the murder of Luke Johnson's teammate Mo Draper (the subject of the trial) and the murder of juror Tom Ryan. The McMillans and Charlie Enright question Luke Johnson's lawyer, the Ryan family, team manager Andrew Brille, and Jerry the guard, but several attempts are made on their lives, including an attempted shooting of Stewart at a football game, before Stewart makes a startling discovery about the way Tom Ryan died - and in turn learns the true reason why Tom Ryan was killed.

  • Mildred is a member of a sequestered jury living in a hotel when someone breaks into her room and tries to suffocate her with a pillow. They are moved to a more secure location but on their first night another juror, Tom Rhine, is shot and killed. They had been hearing the case of Luke Johnson, a major football star who was accused of killing Moe Draper, a man Luke thought his wife was having an affair with. The murder of a juror leads the judge to declare a mistrial. The murder is baffling given that the windows in the dead man's room could not be opened, his door was locked and there was a Sheriff's Deputy on duty in the hallway. Mac thinks however that if he can solve Tom Rhine's murder, it will lead to solving the Draper murder as well. The death of the hotel cook's pet dog is the principal clue that provides the solution.
