As a private detective, Toby Peters has had some pretty impressive clients over the years but none of them has been quite as memorable as his latest: A tough-as-nails, sharp-witted, damsel-in-distress named Mae West. Mae, it seems, has discovered that her only copy of her sizzling autobiography is missing. And when Peters' brother, Phil, is forced to ask for his help, the private eye agreed to track it down. But after taking a beating from a man named Tessner- a thief, a master of disguise and, even more dangerous, a frustrated actor- Peter realises that his job is just beginning. Following the trail of Mae's scandalous memoirs soon leads Peters into the midst of a family feud of Herculean proportions and a California sanitorium, from which he must make a daring escape worthy of Tessner himself...
