Abstract:

"This murder mystery set in California is very much a product of that state. Not only does someone die in a hot tub but the plot is rooted in a quirky family history. The protagonist is a lounge singer named Casey Jones who is still licking his wounds five years after a great adventure (busting a heroin ring) and a great lost love. He reluctantly takes a job as a private eye for a former singer, Dixie Bowen. The clues lead back to Casey's own past as he confronts again his adversary in the drug bust and meets his love Dixie's daughter." --
