Frank and Lu must clear their names when they are framed for various crimes by some mysterious doppelgangers

Arden Constabulary's inundated with complaints about con-artists doing the rounds - and there's something familiar about the duo. At headquarters, Frank and Lu haven't had any new clients in over a week, although Sebastian's inundated with complaints.

Relieved to finally have a client, Frank and Lu visit Emelia Merchant about her missing husband, but she seems to think they've met before.
