The acclaimed, award-winning Stuart M. Kaminsky gives W. C. Fields top billing in the 20th star-studded mystery featuring 1940s detective Toby Peters.W. C. Fields may be the funniest man in Hollywood, but he's no fool when it comes to money. His is stashed in small village banks across the country under assumed names -- until a clever thief steals his bank books and starts robbing him blind. To track down the devious urchin, Fields hires Toby Peters, private eye to the stars, to accompany him on a madcap race through America's one-horse towns. Soon the two learn that there's another desperado on their trail, who is not so interested in Fields' loot, but is very interested in seeing them both dead.
