A regular bowler comes to the island to compete against some great bowlers. Roarke tells him he will be the best bowler he can be for 48 hours. And the guy thinks he got the brass ring but his wife reminds him that once they leave... And he runs into a bookie he knows and decides to put everything on him to win but when the tournament is interrupted he will pass the 48 hours Roarke said he has his ability. And a woman who once ran one of the best circuses around comes to the island for a reunion of his circus performers. But the reason she asks for the reunion is to find out if one of them is trying to kill her. It seems two other people who worked with her in her circus were killed. And there were a few attempts on her life. And the prime suspect is one of her performers who became a bitter man after he sustained a career ending injury that made him bitter. Written by
