Effie and Sam throw some 1940’s slang back and forth between them as they joke about being drunk, and Sam’s latest adventure. He has an appointment to meet with a high power executive.
The busy man, Mr Martini, hardly has time to hire our hard boiled detective before he is gunned down. The shooter makes a fast get away, then the dirt of the life of Mr Martini hits the fan of Sam’s investigation.
Is there a thing between Mrs Martini and the chauffeur, or is it over? Would either have a reason to knock off Martini? What about motives for murder with his business associates?
More secrets are exposed about the heavy drinking habits of the dead man. There’s a wake of financial ruin in the aftermath, and the best justice might be that the killer is a victim of his own crime.
