Goodness has nothing to do with it as a hard-luck private eye in 1940s Hollywood takes a case for legendary silver screen sex symbol Mae West.   In the early days of talking pictures, the greatest sex symbol in Hollywood was the platinum-blonde bad girl Mae West. Naughty and gorgeous with a razor-sharp wit, West wrote her own material and controlled her own image&;until the censors came in and outlawed the racy repartee that made her famous. By the forties, her star has faded and she&;s banking everything on a scandalous memoir that she hopes will set the stage for a comeback. When the only copy is stolen, she calls in a favor from an old beau&;the brother of wisecracking PI Toby Peters.   When Mae West asks, &;Why don&;t you come up sometime and see me?&; you don&;t say no. Peters arrives at a party at West&;s house, where every guest is a man dressed as the woman herself&;and one of them may be the thief who stole the manuscript. But before he can tear off the culprit&;s wig, Peters finds that this is about more than theft. The crook wants to destroy Mae West, and he has murder on his mind.   The star of Edgar Award winner Stuart M. Kaminsky&;s fun forties private eye series, &;Peters is a good guy with a sense of humor, and every appearance he makes is a welcome one&; (Booklist).

display_descriptionAs a favor to his brother, Toby Peters does a job for a fading Hollywood diva You can't trust a man who's dressed as Mae West, especially not in Mae West's house. One of Hollywood's earliest sex symbols, the whip-smart blonde's star has fallen since the Hays Code cracked down on the racy repartee that made her famous. Her latest project is a thinly veiled autobiographical novel, whose only copy is stolen just after she finishes her first draft. Tonight she's having a Mae West party, with every guest a man dressed as her. The thief is among those in drag, and Toby Peters has come to tear off his wig. He's there as a favor to his brother, a brutal cop who had a fling with West when she first moved to Hollywood. But this is more than a theft. The crook wants to destroy Mae West, and he has murder on his mind.
