When Rose French, a former silent film star best known for periodic binges and recently leaving her fifth husband, is found dead in a deserted garden, only Frank Clyde, a friend and social worker, believes it was murder. His subsequent investigation of the local natives of Santa Barbara is both suspenseful and hilarious. Millar does it again.
