Rakishly handsome Paulo Leonetti thrives on the attention he receives from his lady clients at his California coast employer. Time has not been as kind to his wife, Cheri, who is unable to compete with Paulo’s female fan club, especially now that she is pregnant with their first child. Determined to reinvent her image after the baby arrives, Cheri worries whether it will be enough to maintain her husband’s interest.
Adding more fuel to their conflicted marriage is Cheri’s wealthy father, Douglas Northway, who considers Paulo nothing but a bargain-basement beach bum unworthy of his daughter. While he welcomes every opportunity to discredit his son-in-law, the body of one of Paulo’s beautiful clients is discovered, prompting Federal Agent Hugh Chancy to sign on for one last job before he retires. After Chancy and a detective begin their investigation, another of Paulo’s female connections is found murdered. Now as Paulo secures a spot at the top of his list of suspects and a twisted chain of events unfolds, Chancy begins to question whether he will ever see retirement.
In this gripping mystery, a womanizing new father suddenly finds himself as the prime suspect in the murder investigation of two beautiful California girls.
