Here's a brief summary. Enjoy!
Polly Berger's work week
gets off to a bad start when a gangland drive-by
shooting tears up Rosa's Reading Room on the first
floor of Polly's office building. Fortunately for
Rosa, she was in the back room and survived, but now
she insists Polly find the gangbangers who shot up
her place. Rosa suggests it's the work of her new
boyfriend Marko's wife. As if that isn't enough to
fry Polly's brain, her secretary Bunny Contreras,
tells her that shyster lawyer Bugsy Bernstein wants
to pay Polly's P.I. firm big bucks to help with a
Polly is uncertain she wants to sign on when she
learns Bugsy's client is the Right Reverend Harvey
Kow, a Hollywood televangelist known to the media as
Holy Kow. Kow is the pastor and founder of
Hollywood's notorious Golden Cathedral, and his wife
Holly (yes, Holly), is missing. The D.A.'s office
suspects Harvey. Bugsy asks Polly to find Kow's wife
and help clear the preacher's name. Polly wonders if
that's even possible.
During the course of Polly's investigation, rumors
surface of an affair between the missing Holly and
the lead singer in the Cathedral's Go 4 Gold
barbershop quartet. Polly convinces Bunny to join
the Cathedral's Golden Oldies barbershop
chorus in order to gather evidence about the
quartet's lead singer. Unfortunately, matters go
from bad to worse when Polly and Bunny stumble on
the murder of one of the quartet members.
Inevitably, suspicion falls on the baritone, but
Polly isn't so sure. Will Polly's investigation
strike a sour note and fall flat, or will she
resolve the discord and bring harmony back to the
barbershop world? And what about Holy Kow's missing
Holly? Not to mention Rosa and the gangbangers.
Polly has her hands full in this one.
