The owners, guests and company of Seventy Seven Palms, in the Colorado desert, combine to razzledazzle the law when two murders put them in the spotlight. Ingenious subterfuges resorted to --sometimes successful, sometimes not, but the final payoff puts them all in the clear. Combines G-man, opera company, Indians, fortune teller, romance, drinking, defaced corpse, mystery man, innocent suspect, et al. in such a fast pace that the reader has no chance to pause for thought... Entertaining, but not Grade A.
