It seems like a known criminal hired her to pretend to be his daughter. She now wants out because one of the criminal's rivals grabbed her to get to him. She thinks he's trying to keep her actual daughter safe. When he shows up asking her to go with him, Wolfe convinces him to let her go. He tells Archie to take her to a hotel and when they get there someone shoots her. Later the criminal wants to see Wolfe but before he could go in, he's shot too. Later the criminal's lawyer goes to see Wolfe who tells him that his client named him executor. And what he wants him to do is to take care of his daughter. The lawyer provides him with her address. He has Archie bring her to him. Later someone takes a shot at her but misses. Wolfe thinks it could be her father's rival or her father's confidant who is disgruntled that he wasn't left much.
