This is the fourth in the Toby Peters mystery series, set in 1940's Hollywood; the first book is "Bullet for a star". In this novel, Peters is hired by Howard Hughes, who claims that secret plans in his study were copied during a recent dinner party - either by a guest or a member of his staff. This is a fun read, with cameo appearances by Basil Rathbone and Bertold Brecht, gangsters, suspicious German suspects and Peters usual ability to get beaten up on a regular basis. The book ends with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and a phone call from Boris Karloff leading to the next mystery.
