New Englander Peter Batholomew is an odd-job entrepreneur and some of his jobs are very odd indeed. While trying to win back his ex-wife, he is engaged to protect beautiful young wife of rich islander, Anthony Simmons. Someone is trying to kill her and there are no lack of suspects. I gave this 4 and 1/2 stars rather than 5 only because I figured it out. (Always knock off a half star for that!)
