Betty Brant has been kidnapped by Tommy Futh for getting too close to why Jimmy was killed. They had a dream to push their restaurant, hoping that it would catch on, but it required more capital to keep it running. Tommy went to some less than legit people to back the restaurant, allowing them to expand, but Jimmy wasn't happy with the backers. He wanted to blow the situation wide open, so he was killed. Tommy says that he shouldn't have talked to Betty and fires the gun.
Meanwhile, the Bugle investigates her disappearance, finding her ransacked apartment. They decide to methodically check her mail and rolodex to find leads on her disappearance.
Back at the Food Factory, Tommy demands that she hand over the accounts papers or else he'll kill her, but she has no idea what he's talking about. Meanwhile, at the Daily Bugle, one of the people looking for leads finds them in an envelope. She finds that the restaurant is likely being used as a money laundering front. A front whose face is Morgan Hall, the mobster from the first issue. Ben Urich goes to see Hall and strikes a deal with him.
With the deal off for Tommy Fude, he allows Charlie Snow to leave the restaurant as the police surround it. Finally he gives up, killing himself in front of Betty.
