Vinnie, of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds, has run up a gambling debt of $786,000 with mobster Bobby Sunflower and is being held until the cash can be produced. Nobody else will pay to get Vinnie back, leaving it up to Stephanie, office manager Connie and file clerk Lula to raise the money if they want to save their jobs. Being in the business of tracking down people, they have an advantage in finding Vinnie. Finding a safe place to hide Vinnie turns out to be harder than raising the money. Between a bonds office yard sale, Mooner's Hobbit-Con charity event, and Uncle Pip's mysterious bottle, they just might raise enough money to save the business, and Vinnie, from ruin.
