Once a year, this cozy little town is overrun by actors, playwrights, directors, and aficionados, all of whom are as interested in cocktail parties as they are in what happens onstage. After a tiring day, Mike and Phyllis are having drinks in the hotel bar when they hear a woman scream. Her name is Nora Carson, and she is visibly shaken.After ten long years, Nora believes she has just seen her father, an eccentric old prospector, standing right outside the hotel window. She chases after him, but by the time she reaches him, it is too late. Hours after making his big strike, Nora’s father is dead—and it’s up to Mike Shayne to discover who snuffed him out.
