Play Now.....Kill Later by Carter Brown

Though she was a playwright's daughter,
her body had lines no man could master...
no blackmailer could murder!

Robert McGinnis Cover
The Cast
Antonia: Tall and elegant, looking like an Egyptian Pharaoh's dream of bliss after a hard day at the pyramids. "Any friend of Pop is a friend of mine. If you don't like his plays, lets discuss them in bed. I'm sure I can change your mind!"

Sandy: Blond, bountiful in body, a pretty face, and a private eye to boot. "Twenty-three years old and just one small birthmark strategically located.You've seen the rest already."

Jackie: Mistress of the moment to anyone with the time. "Nobody says you have to get involved. Just research a little and we'll both know if anything zings between us!"

Helen: Graying, middle aged and wearing a bullet hole over her left eye. she  could have said a lot, but kept silent. Supported by a variety of males, some scared, some stupid, some stoned, and all trouble.

The Star
Rick Holman: The most important man to know in Hollywood, especially when you're being blackmailed.

The critics said "Great!" but the coroner said "Murder."
The Time: The present
The Place: Bel Air, California
