The greed and glamour of Vegas are nothing new for comedian Steve Allen, until his show at the famous Colosseum ends in murder. Allen's wife, Jayne Meadows, rushes in with the horrifying news that crooner Buddy Hamilton's wife, Christie, was strangled in the sauna. Of all people, it's Buddy who looks like he cashed in his wife's chips, and even Steve thinks he did it. However, the facts don't add up, and Allen figures out there's more to the case than meets the eye.
"Steve Allen, TV's renaissance man, now emerges as a master of the comic who-done-it. His murder mysteries will hold you enthralled." (Sidney Sheldon)
Steve Allen is one of America's gems. He is a witty guy. He was first host of the NBC Tonight Show. Turns out he is a great mystery author as well. If you like mysteries with tongue in cheek humor, read Steve Allen.
Steve Allen makes himself the detective, and the show business setting is something that he knows well.
This is not a dark or serious mystery. It is just fun, and it is a great way to pass some time.
