Kookie's just driven by a hit & run killing 2 people, when a mysterious blonde repeatedly tries to run him off Sunset Boulevard. The crash disfigures the woman, & a witness disappears from the scene with her purse. Hotrodder Kookie was on the way to a hot date, so he'd borrowed Stu's classier ride. The woman's a well-known thesp, her hubby's a well-connected tycoon, so the fuzz put the squeeze on hep-cat Kookie, not the jet setters. PI Stu tries to untangle the web that's ensnared him too.
