"Max Roper, durable investigator, is sapped, doped and imprisoned on a boat apparently used by a mysterious Oriental for business purposes. The point of this caper is to have Max carry a warning to basketball superstar Jo-Jo Gonzaga that he must throw the championship play-off. When Gonzaga is shot and killed in his own fabulous and eccentrically designed home after his team wins the second game of the series, Roper decides to find the hoods who had abducted him.
Max discovers that a lot of people wanted Gonzaga dead and that there is more to this murder than the gangland routine of forcing a team win at any cost. For example:
Jules Belmont, miserly millionaire who likes to bet and bet big. He also hates to lose--a bet or a dame.
Sandy Shaw, a bright and sexy whiz kid who can beat the computer in her specialty of voice prints.
Larry LaSalle, her boss, resident expert at UCLA, the man who had designed the computer which can identify any person from his speech patterns.
Barbara Belmont, niece of Jules. A hippie girl who lives at sea and tries to keep Roper the same.
