"Ray" is a shadowy character with a mysterious 'secret agent' past. People in trouble often come to him for help, since he has a lot of important and powerful contacts. He refuses to be paid for his services; however, those seeking his assistance must promise him a favor. Some time in the future, Ray will come to them and ask to collect on that favor, giving them some task that is often arduous and/or dangerous. The title of the show comes from the vintage Corvette Stingray that Ray drives.
"Stingray" attracted his clients by advertising a black 1965 Chevrolet Corvette "for barter only".
"Stingray's" real name and actual occupation are never revealed in any of the installments; throughout the series, any attempt any other character makes, in any installment, to track down his identity inevitably and invariably leads in the wrong direction and/or to a dead end.
Ray is contacted by a doctor at a mental hospital about some strange occurrences. But, once he gets inside the hospital, he finds out the "doctor" is really a patient. However, there really are some nefarious activities that he uncovers.
