But when someone cuts in and cuts Luna&;s throat, the grieving gangster makes Peters an offer he can&;t refuse: Find the killer&;or go from having two left feet to one foot in the grave.   Now, instead of punishing the parquet, the silver screen&;s most famous song-and-dance man is pounding the pavement with his new partner&;a rumpled, middle-aged gumshoe who just wants to live to shuffle through another day . . .

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.
