The ring on the finger was just the beginning.
Turns out hardly-boiled ace detective Nick Noir has rented a sailboat, The Lady Lovey Dove, for a romantic honeymoon cruise during hurricane season. When a hurricane inevitably douses the romance, and the two lovebirds end up at the Jolly Rodger Bed and Breakfast, the only inn on an otherwise deserted island, the newlyweds find themselves mistaken for J. J. Hay, a ruthless tycoon, and his mother. The owner of the inn, Violet Van Leer, introduces Nick and Selma to the guests. There’s Ozzie Hawkins, a U.S. Congressman, and his young wife, Dora; the great mystery writer, Zona Zou; a famous hypnotist, Madam Alma; a country singer, Patsy Robbins; and a homemaking guru, Emmie Bloom. Nick and Selma are at a loss for words, but against their better judgment, they decide to go along with the gag. That is, until someone takes a shot at them. And then someone sends poison candy as a gift. And then they’re knocked out and hung up in the walk-in freezer. Fortunately, they manage to thaw, but realize there are two bodies hanging up in the freezer: could they be the real J.J. Hay and his mother? Already dead?
