Summary (From the publisher):

What would it take to lure a serious young newswoman from a respectable New England paper to the most notorious tabloid in America? How about the promise of a salary that's triple what she's making?

En route to her new job at the Weekly Galaxy, Sara Joslyn stumbles across a bloody corpse in a Buick Riviera. A big story? Not in this paper. "On what TV series does he appear?" asks Jack Ingersoll, her acerbic young editor. The problem is compounded when the dead man vanishes, Buick and all.

Sara soon finds herself matching wits with bizarre publisher Bruno DeMassi, scheming with three drunken Australians over the problem of the 100-year-old twins, hunting down a TV megastar in his honeymoon haven, getting shot at in a dark motel on Martha's Vineyard, and pursuing the enigmatic "Body in a Box."

And through it all, there remains that problem of the corpse in the Buick.
