This is a new ebook edition of a book published in hardcover by Weidenfeld & Nicolson in 1989.

1937, Devon. Johnny Black is a young and penniless pilot turned detective in the glamorous yet dangerous thirties. His girlfriend, the lovely Tracy Spencer-King, enlists him to help a friend, Diana Travers, and the unfolding tragedy becomes his first case. Diana's sister, Deborah, died a few months before in what Diana believes are suspicious circumstances. Apparently Deborah was riding with her husband, the actor Michael Seagrave, in his new Frazer-Nash sports car on Bigbury Sands when — like the star Isadora Duncan — her long scarf got tangled in the wheels and broke her neck. Despite police being satisfied that Deborah's death was a tragic accident, Diana thinks that Seagrave murdered his wife. But does Diana know more than she is letting on?

Johnny's investigations soon begin to support Diana's doubts, for Seagrave proves to be a long standing philanderer and is currently pursuing a girl employed by a dancing academy, Daphne Phipps, and Susan Prendergast the daughter of a rich tycoon. Suspicions deepen when the dancer disappears and Johnny unearths some unsavoury facts about Seagrave's past. Soon Black is up to his neck in murder and mayhem, as another key figure disappears and a blood-stained jacket turns up on the back of a murderer who has escaped from Dartmoor. It soon becomes clear that whoever is behind the disappearances might just want Johnny and Tracy dead too …

Beverly Cohen, a local caterer with big aspirations, doesn't care whose toes she steps on in her quest for success. Her ability to insult people is matched only by her insensitivity to their feelings. Although her constant bragging is annoying, it is her indiscrete remarks to a tabloid reporter that could ruin someone's life.

Not surprisingly, someone poisons her.

Wally Morris, who has witnessed Beverly's vitriol and boasts, investigates the murder after she decides that the wrong person has been arrested. The suspects range from residents of Wally's town of Grosvenor, New Jersey, to movie stars working on the film being made in town.

It will take all of Wally's perspicacity and keen powers of observation to solve the case. But if she finds the killer, will she have to pay for her inquisitiveness with her life?
