Lee Manning, filmland Romeo, committed suicide after a Hollywood bash. Or did he? Georgia Brown, babbling blonde, could tell what really happened. But would she? Paula Reid, demon TV interviewer,m was going to spill the facts on her TV show. But could she? Before the story got a chance to sizzle the airwaves, a killer stepped in and stopped George Brown dead. So Police Lieutenant Al Wheeler plays a near fatal role in an underground production of murder.

When a blonde Hollywood party girl who has been to one too wild brawl too many agrees to tell all on a candid TV show, somebody blows her up before she can name names coast to coast. This leaves  free wheeling California cop, Al Wheeler to pick up the pieces as he treads his way through a labyrinth of beauties ion a hot and heady chase to catch the killer.
