The Body in the Back Seat
It's the Swinging Sixties and Harry Trauble is ready for some California Dreamin'. He's young, single, living at a cool beach-side pad and working in Hollywood at Ogle, the nation's second most popular magazine for men. So what if the Vietnam Conflict is heating up and Watts is a racial powder key about to blow? At Ogle, with its beautiful people, amusing eccentrics and sexual freedom, it's nothing but fun and games. Unless you're worried about a company executive being crushed by a giant statue of the magazine''s jaunty frog logo . . . or the strangled corpse left in the back seat of Harry's car . . . or the dark and sinister plan that's placed the employees of Ogle on the hit list of a very efficient assassin.
