Matt Cobb scrambles to save a celebrity event turned upside down by robbery and murder . Matt Cobb may not be a detective by trade, but there are times when he sure feels like one. As the VP of special projects for a television conglomerate, Cobb is an expert at getting the network out of tricky situations. Now his company is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary with a weekend-long extravaganza, flying in dozens of celebrities for a prime-time party. And as the event approaches, egos flare, nerves fray, and someone sabotages the studio. First a reporter drowns in a TV star's pool. Then an actress's bowling ball -- her lucky talisman -- is stolen, and some important kinescopes disappear. As the body count climbs, Cobb finds himself asking if these strange events are connected, and if so, who is behind them?
