Police Inspector Farraday is about to go off duty when a strange case of murder falls onto his lap. Of course, he immediately sends for Boston Blackie to see what he knows about it. A body is found on a boat. The boat is on a city street, over 5 miles from any water.
It turns out to be a movie set. Is the murder just a publicity stunt to promote the movie being filmed? The practical joke is serious business when the intended body turns out to be a real body. The setup is so totally bizarre, but follow the motive, and the money, and just like Blackie, the mystery will be solved.
Especially when another body is found, Blackie has all the answers. Listen in, and he’ll lay it all out for you in the end.
