(From the publisher):
An ad-man's life is not a happy one. Or so Dave Robbins must have reflected when he was put in charge of the prestigious Burke Baby Food account. He'd only got the job because of Gordon Tait's heart attack, and now, as well as having to fend off the unwelcome attentions of the Countess, an influential client, he would have to bear the wisecracks and scorn of Kermit Burke, the shrewd ruler of the Burke empire.
But if things weren't difficult at the start, they became positively fatal later on, when blackmail and murder surrounded the figure of the Burke Baby, America's best-loved infant.
Perhaps, thought Dave, his near-fatal fall from a station platform hadn't been as innocent as it seemed? And if that was the case, was the death of Bob Bernstein, the photographer unexpectedly pulled off the Burke Baby job, the accident everyone assumed it to be? Dave wasn't sure he wanted to know the answers.
