From the outset he is at odds with the convention organiser, the dowdy but forthright Sammy Pallister. Then, he clashes with the head writer, Ernestia Berkeley, and his spirits sink further when a familiar, dirt-digging, investigative reporter turns up incognito.

And things are about get worse. In the early hours of the morning, Joe is called to account for his whereabouts after a body has been found behind the hotel/convention centre.
