Hollywood 1942. WWII is raging, and P.I. Toby Peters agrees to do some investigating for his brother, a cop, into the disappearance of the manuscript of Mae West’s autobiography. Murder and mayhem ensue, with Peters spending a short time as a patient in a mental institution. Parker’s differentiated voices are perfect for the cast of zany characters, including Cecil B. deMille and the inimitable Mae West, and his portrayal of Peters as a wisecracking detective is right on. He excels at conveying the wonderful humor in the book, the hilarious views Peters has of himself, friends, relatives, and life in general, as well as great one-liners. Apt phrasing and timing round out this entertaining audio. S.S.R. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 98]
