These mysteries are set in the 1940's and, in this one, Toby Peters has been hired by Louis B. Mayer to keep the Marx Brothers from bad publicity. Chico Marx is in gambling trouble, threatened for a debt of $120,000 by Chicago mobsters which he claims he doesn't owe - as he has been busy losing his money in Vegas instead... So the Hollywood sunshine is swopped for Chicago snow and Peters heads out to try to get to the bottom of the problem and save Chico's fingers being sent to his brothers in a box if he doesn't pay up.
As with all the books in this excellent series, there is a lot of great one-liners and wonderful characters and cameo appearances. As well as the Marx Brothers, we have a rather distant Al Capone, recently recently from prison and, in Peters words, "as nutty as a fruitcake". There is also a brilliant taxi driver and a helping hand from Ian Fleming, every bit as dashing as his fictional creation. Add in crooked cops and Chicago gangsters and Peters has his hands full - especially as within twenty four hours of arrival he finds a dead body in his closet and catches flu. This is great fun and a really good read. The next in the series is The Howard Hughes Affair: A Toby Peters Mystery (Book Four): Toby Peters Mystery Series, Book 4 .
It is a good addition to this series of books.
