This fast-paced period mystery concerns a Beverly Hills cop, one Rick Barron, who, through some quick thinking at a tragic accident, is hired to be head of security for an up-and-coming studio in 1939. Assigned to keep British actor Clete Barrow on the wagon, Rick rubs elbows with Samuel Goldwyn, Clark Gable, and Greta Garbo, and has a run-in with one of "Bugsy" Siegal's thugs. This last drama makes for most of the action, but there's plenty of romance, as well as WWII, to make this a first-rate story. Guerin Barry's steady, confident voice gives individual voices to all characters, male and female, British and American. His lively presentation makes this story a fine listening experience.
