Art Fraser, the bridge-playing detective who made his debut in Takeout Double, has left Buffalo and moved his new family to Florida, where he is setting up as a private investigator. However, he's soon called back North to Boston, where a robbery at the ACBL Fall Nationals has left one man dead and a whole lot of money missing. The local homicide cops aren't overjoyed to have Fraser involved, but they're also struggling to understand the ins and outs of the bridge tournament world. The two camps work out an uneasy arrangement as the mystery deepens...
