(From the publisher):
Wilfred Jefferson Jellicoe had disappeared. And his ex-wife, hard pressed for her alimony payment, hired Shell Scott to find him.
A few hours after he took the case, Scott was summoned to the bedside of Gideon Cheim, famed Hollywood producer. Cheim also had an urgent need to know Jellicoe's whereabouts. For he had entrusted him with a priceless document - an autobiography that was to be published only after his death.
Now the Cheim manuscript was missing, along with the man who was bound to protect it. A coincidence? Perhaps. But Scott didn't think so. And if what Cheim told him was true, the manuscript could be dynamite in the hands of the wrong person.
Original title: The Cheim Manuscript
