She is hot on the trail of the biggest story of her career - corruption and racketeering that leads to the prominent heads of Hollywood studios. When her only witness is murdered, she herself beaten as a warning, and she is officially taken off the story, Candy forges ahead with the help of Spenser. It is a deadly game and she plays with the only thing she has control of, her feminine wiles. Spenser's skill are put to the test. In the end, Candy has broken the story and given credit, though a bit late.

Throughout all of Robert Parker's books, this quote fully explains Spenser's viewpoint of his sexual indiscretions while engaged in a committed relationship with Susan:
"It's got nothing to do with fair," I said, "or unfair. Perhaps it's a real recognition that hers would be an affair of the heart, while mine is of the flesh only, so to speak."
