Lulu Evans makes quite a splash at the Mountain Aire hotel in 1931 when she fills in for her cousin. Not only is her performance jazzy and sexy, it delights the band director who sees financial success in his future. She also attracts the attention of a vacationing business mogul eager to back her, a Broadway producer looking for a new star, a struggling playwright in search of a muse, and a gaggle of lovestruck teenage boys.
Success breeds jealousy and rivalries and one morning Lulu is found dead on the doorstep of one of her admirers. Nurse Aggie Burnside is called to help the doctor determine the cause of death but she can’t help herself from investigating who could have killed the young woman.
Can Aggie sort through the bogus alibis and motivations and get justice?
