The Japanese are bombing Guadalcanal. General Montgomery faces a desperate Rommel in Tunisia. FDR proposes a cradle-to-grave Social Security plan. The war's getting long and L.A.'s sleuth to the stars Toby Peters is getting twenty-five dollars a day plus expenses. His job: convince a vainglorious gun moll and a semiretired gangster to leave Fred Astaire alone.The woman is Luna Martin, a blond beauty with feet of solid lead and the grace of an armadillo. The ex-mobster is Arthur Forbes, a.k.a. Fingers Intaglia, who's swapped his onetime prominence in Detroit's Purple Gang for Los Angeles real estate and respectability.It seems Luna wants to dance, and Forbes wants the most famous feet in America to teach her. Fred Astaire wants Toby to get Forbes and the rather loose Luna off his back...and every other part of his anatomy.

display_description To save a film star's fingers, Toby Peters gives dance lessons Fred Astaire has a headache named Luna. The moll of a well-known Los Angeles gangster, Luna has demanded dance lessons from Hollywood's finest hoofer, and whatever Luna wants, Luna gets. But after two lessons with the lead-footed lady, Astaire tires of her making passes at him, and hires famously discreet private investigator Toby Peters to break the news gently. Trouble is, Luna and her boyfriend-nicknamed "Fingers" because he likes to cut them off-don't take bad news well. To protect the star's digits, Toby attempts to pass himself off as a dance instructor. For his troubles, he earns a spanking from Fingers and a promise of more pain if Astaire doesn't come around. Not long after, Luna surfaces with a cut throat, never to dance again. Toby may not be a dancer, but to escape this deadly mire he has no choice but to stay nimble and keep his feet moving.
