Storyline

A publicist tries to hire Mike to serve as the bodyguard for one of the two favorites in a high stakes beauty contest, but he refuses the offer. When the other favorite is found murdered in her dressing room, Mike agrees to represent her benefactor, an ex-mobster who swears he's gone straight. Mike must sort out the clues that point to several possible suspects - including other contestants, a businessman on the verge of bankruptcy and a sleazy bodyguard who might have double-crossed his employer. Written by David Bassler
