Allen's wit, charm, and musical talent have made him him one of America's most beloved
entertainers. Now this veteran show-business personality has written--and stars
in--a mystery thriller as refreshingly funny and enjoyable as Steve Allen himself.
It all begins quite innocently, as these things usually do.
Terry Cole, king of the late-night talk shows, needs a vacation. Steve Allen
agrees to step into the breach. But when one of his guests drops dead on stage--poisoned
from Cajun vodka in Terry's on-stage refrigerator--Steve suddenly finds himself in the
middle of a sensational murder case.
Who was trying to murder whom? Was Steve Allen the intended
victim? Or was Terry Cole? Terry certainly has more than his share of enemies,
- Kathleen, his gorgeous ex-wife, whose well-publicized divorce from Terry left her with a
thirst for revenge.
- Tessa Moore, his rival in the talk-show ratings, whose foul mouth doesn't exactly hide
her intense ambition.
- Sonny Melnik, the producer Terry's been walking over for years.
When Steve discovers that he is also a suspect, he decides
it's time to break the case wide open. And as he stumbles his way brilliantly to the
thrilling conclusion, he decides the words Steve Allen, detective at large have a
nice ring to them.
