Intrepid crime magazine reporter and mystery novelist Paige Turner has a taste for danger and she's nearly met her maker more than once in the course of her sleuthing. But a New York heat wave is more daunting than any murderous thug, so when her neighbor Abby announces she has free Broadway tickets, Paige leaps at the chance to sit in an air conditioned theater. The new play is Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and the male lead knocks them dead. Paige find someone's done the same to him when they stop at his apartment the next morning. Great period setting, NY at it's best in the 50's.
