Stuart and Jeff's old friend Art Moomey hires Stuart to look into a commercial property, the Switchburg Hotel, he is thinking about buying. He asks Stuart instead of a real estate agent since the hotel is located in Switchburg, a virtual ghost town in the old silver mining region of the Nevada desert about four hundred miles away from Las Vegas. There are no such regular services such as a real estate office in Switchburg let alone a mayor, and Art is unable to find out anything about the hotel on his own. It appeals to the eccentric side of him, he who plans to fix it up if it is worth buying only to sell it to someone even more eccentric than him for a profit. Stopping off in Las Vegas on his way, Stuart ends up having company, at least to Kingsley, fifty miles outside Switchburg, in the form of casino cocktail waitress Nan Polly with who he made a personal connection. In Switchburg, he finds that he seems to be getting some sort of runaround in that the few old timers he meets ...
Did You Know?
Miss Polly, your sister and I, well, uh, we developed a warm and promising friendship.
It figures. She'd like your type.
I'd like to become a friend of the family.
I'm a nice girl, Mr. Bailey.
