A phone call sends Sam to a radio station, and his next case. A radio show has an innovative idea for a crime and mystery show, involving real interviews for listeners to engage in the detective work. A nice gimmick, but Sam is called on to track down the killer behind the real crime. Shady characters a large sum of money, a torrid divorce case, and that’s just the beginning for Sam.
Tracing the trail, Sam begins with dance hall dame, Rosalee, and ends up with a dead Jimmy Biddle, radio personality. A tape recorded message holds a confession, and a suicide note. The gimmicks and radio practical jokes spiral out of control when gunshots keep Sam hopping.
Shake downs, blackmail, and crossing paths with the wrong people means disaster, but Sam is no victim. He finds clues in the tape recorded message, and its all he needs to face off with the real killer. Sam reports on the fists that fly as he concludes his report with Effie.
