SYNOPSIS
Putting behind them the grisly nightmare of "The Strip-Tease Murders" (which, by the way, is breaking modern mystery sales records), Gypsy Rose Lee and Biff Brannigan got married at sea off Los Angeles, having found in a saloon the necessary captain, as well as an obliging stranger to be best man. When they reached Ysleta, Texas, they had collected four more passengers (old pals from the Burlesque fraternity) in addition to Mother Evangie and their erstwhile best man—for his was the corpse!
