Publisher's Summary

Disc jockey Tutter King has it made. Every time he spins a platter on King's Session, gold comes out: TV earnings, returns on his secret holdings in recording companies - the old payola that some bright young men think only their rightful due.

Tutter is a gay young man-around-town who has the world dancing to his tune. He is also involved in some hanky-panky with his pretty blond assistant, Lola Arkwright.

And then the roof starts to cave in: Senate investigating committees; the angry emergence of the wife who Lola never knew existed; the canceling of his network contract. Poor Tutter, it looks like he is going to lose everything - even his life!

Very good story, but…

This is a very good story, with interesting characters who all act realistically. But, it’s NOT an Ellery Queen mystery! The Master Detective never makes an appearance in the story. Nor is the style all that Queensian.

Get the book if you enjoy a good mystery, but don’t feel obligated to add it to your Ellery Queen collection.
