A simple job lands in the lap of Richard Diamond. All he has to do is go to a ship, pick up a package of cosmetic samples, and he walks away with an easy $200 when it’s delivered safe and sound, Things get complicated when a thug crosses paths, also looking for that package of cold cream. No thumps on the head yet, but the quirky characters and situations keep coming.
The package is picked up, but obstacles fill Richards path. Will it be head thumping time? How about an explosion, and murder enters the picture.
What else is there to do but visit the sultry dame who the exploding cold cream was to be delivered. Will Richard learn anything significant from here? Will a return trip to Monsieur Beauchand reveal anything new?
Using his head, Richard discovers the real importance the cold cream is covering up, but the dangers aren’t over for him yet.
The guns come out, and Richard finds himself with only his sweet talking manner to get him out of the jam. Sweet talkm, and waiting for his buddy Walt to show up with the cops.
Keith shares a letter from a listener, and a request for a topic on a uture Retro OTR Diary.
