Bobbies lover, truck driver and body builder Arnie Siganski, asks Jake to find the murderer. Much against his inclination, Jake finds himself hanging around Bobbies most recent place of employment, the Quest Theater, a failing operation run by Hank Harvey, a former stunt man who wants to play Hamlet, and his wife, who once was a back-up swimmer for Esther Williams. The theater is in the middle of a crisis over avant-garde playwright and actress Yolanda Meltzer, who is not, to put it mildly, a box-office attraction but who is backed by Tim and Tina, the backstage mainstays of the Quest, without whose services the company could not survive. Having fallen for Ginny Warner, who runs the Quests box office, Jake finds his role of private eye getting complicated when two of the principal characters are killed in separate accidents.
