Storyline

When a movie producer is found murdered on his set, Shayne is hired by the man financing the film to assist the police in the investigation. Shayne discovers that the actresses working on the film hated the dead man because of his lecherous ways and a has-been director resented the way his role in the production was reduced to that of a voice coach.
