Before the Psych Agency can begin to investigate the disappearance of an up and coming tennis star, Shawn must first retrieve Gus from a corporate retreat, and they soon realize things are not always as they appear.
Shawn comes to the police station, bored, looking for a case. Gus is out of town at a retreat with his company. While at the station, Shawn sees a man, Leonard Sirtis, talking to Chief Vick. His daughter, Deanna, a highly ranked local tennis player, is missing. The prime suspect is a former stalker of hers, Felix Alvarez. Vick relents to let Shawn to locate Deanna psychically while the cops follow conventional leads.
Shawn gets Gus out of his retreat by telling his bosses that Gus' grandmother is ill. Together, they go to the Sirtis house, where they learn that besides tennis, photography was a hobby of Deanna's. They also learn Leonard had a security camera put into Deanna's room after Felix broke into the house and discover a cheap gold ring among her expensive jewelry. It's an eternity ring, given by someone with whom she was probably intimate. Clearly, she doesn't wear the ring all the time. Must be from a secret lover her controlling father doesn't approve of.
Shawn and Gus go to the tennis club to talk to Deanna's hitting partner. She tells them that Deanna was boy crazy. She recently started dating another player on the tour and her father wasn't happy about it. Deanna might just be laying low to get her father off her back. And, after discovering an alternate address for her in the club computer, they have a good idea where.
When they get to the apartment, the police, EMTs and crime scene photographer are already there. Deanna is being loaded, unconscious, into an ambulance. This is no longer a missing persons case, it's attempted murder. In the apartment, Shawn sees more cheap jewelry. The secret boyfriend must have been here. There are many pictures of Deanna, taken in the apartment. Shawn notices a trophy is present in all the pictures but is now missing from the shelf. Must have been the weapon used in the attempt on Deanna's life. Lassiter hauls Felix in and is convinced he has the right man after finding the bloody trophy in the suspect's car. But Shawn still has doubts.
