Blurb: 
MacDonald apparently loathes the Hollywood scene, and he creates some characters to show us why. (A couple of times during the series Travis reels off a list of things he has no use for, and "actresses" are included.) There's a new character being added to McGee's Regulars, a photography wizard named Gabe Marchman who will be lending his expertise when Travis needs it.

It was every celebrity's worst nightmare - a blackmailer in possession of sensationally obscene pictures. So, Foxy redhaired movie star Lysa Dean sent her secretary to pursuade a reluctant McGee to solve her little problem. Accompanied by the frosty secretary, who was rapidly thawing in Travis's manly presence, they chase after clues in Big Sur, a New York ski resort, Hollywood, and Las Vegas. We are given some amusing observations about all these locales and their denizens.
