Ex-reporter, Bill Tracy, writes scripts for a trashy soap opera, Millie's Millions. It drives him to drink. Yet murders are now being committed based on ideas for a script just outlined on his type writer. How did the clever murderer get into Tracy's mind? Guess who is the prime suspect? Should Tracy choose Dotty or Millie to settle down with? This is a mystery with great wit and humor. Includes great atmospheric descriptions of the 1940's gunshoe bar scenes in New York City.
