Bungling hotel detective (and hard-boiled detective wannabe) Dick Piston is hoping for a quiet night at the Lakeview Hotel. But the nights are never quiet in the big city. And when a half-naked widow staggers into his office just before midnight, Dick Piston has only ten minutes to solve her husband's brutal murder or risk losing her case to the day shift.
