Private Eye Bob Holmes thinks the case he accepts from the bizarre looking woman who walks in one night will be a cake walk. Weeks later he's battered and bruised, and still hasn't solved the case. He HAS fallen in love with the client, though, and the one obstacle between him and happily ever after is her mother.
Private detectives get all kinds of odd, cases. Bob Holmes is a private eye, and odd doesn't even come close to characterizing the case that develops when a bizarre looking young woman walks into his office and hires him to retrieve a pair of roller skates for her. The task sounds like a cakewalk and Bob allots half a day to wrapping it up. Weeks later he's bruised, battered, in love with his client ... and still hasn't managed to liberate the skates. So who has them? Some Mafioso? An Asian crime lord? A Chicago street gang? Nothing so simple. No, this villain tops them all, and Bob is no match for his client's ... mother.
Told in a faintly noir style, with overtones of the Keystone Cops, this tale will leave you breathless, initially from laughter, and eventually from the erotic scenes as Bob’s life takes a turn for the better.
