All he has to do is slosh around Pebble Beach a few hours and have the evenings to himself. Hes guarding a writer named Jack Slate in Carmel-by-the-Sea, where Slate plans to play in, and Nick plans to watch, a big golf tournament. Slate has been receiving death threats. He is an investigative journalist, and right now he is onto something very hot indeed. Then Slate, and a stranger later identified as an FBI agent, die in the decidedly accidental crash of a small plane they had somewhat inexplicably taken up. Far from being over, Polos job just begins with Slates death. Slates lawyer, who had hired Polo in the first place, wants Nick to get hold of the dead mans explosive manuscript before anyone else can. One delightful obstacle to Polos try is a beautiful young woman named Vanilla.
