CRIME & MYSTERY. Narrating the twisted tale of a backstage double murder, Gypsy Rose Lee, the queen of the striptease, provides a tantalising glimpse into the underworld of burlesque theatre in 1940s America. When one performer is found strangled with a G-string, no one is above suspicion. A host of clueless coppers face off against the theatre's tough-talking guys and dolls, and when a second murder occurs, it's clear that Gypsy and her cohorts will have to crack the case themselves.
