Long summer days and Ice-Cream knights inspire newly betrothed Alan Lamaire to become a driver errant for the legendary Monarch Ice Cream company, a champion for "The Treat that makes Kids Kings!" Alan soon learns that no one on active duty at Monarch cares much about kids, drivers, kings or ice cream. Think money--lots of money in dribs and drabs, and not everyone cares exactly how they get it. Stir in a nearly irresistible temptress among Alan's regular clients, and a cold-hearted murder for which Alan becomes the chief suspect, and Alan soon finds that more than his relationship with aspiring actress Jane Clayton, is in peril. To keep the police off his case, his bosses off his back, and his ladylove by his side, Alan will have to keep his cool before an increasingly desperate killer puts him in the deep freeze forever.
