Abstract:

Roger Banfield is a hapless, generous, booze-hound millionaire. Out of misplaced gratitude, he wants to help Reverend Curtis Singer to improve his Eternal Glory Street Mission and its transients. However, the handsome young preacher and Ginger, Roger's wife, think they know better than he does how a fortune should be spent. He's always drunk; he'll be easy to bump off. Their first attempt to murder him doesn't quite work. Nor the second. Nor the third ... And meanwhile, likeable, gullible Roger earnestly wants to understand these accidents he keeps having, and as he searches for answers he discovers the pleasures of sobriety and good health under the blazing sun of Miami.
