Shasta tells him about her new lover, Mickey Wolfmann, and asks Doc to help prevent a plot by Mickey's wife and her lover to have Mickey abducted and committed to an insane asylum.

if the word her lover refers to Mickey then why he himself want to have abducted and committed to an insane asylum.

that is why I am confused understanding this sentence.

What is the meaning of this above confusing sentence?

Shasta tells [Doc] about her new lover, Mickey Wolfmann, and asks Doc to help prevent a plot by Mickey's wife and her lover to have Mickey abducted and committed to an insane asylum.

There are five people involved: Shasta, Doc, Mickey, Mickey's wife (who is not Shasta), and Mickey's wife's lover (who is not Mickey).

So it is Mickey's wife and Mickey's wife's lover who are plotting to abduct Mickey.
