Summary, etc.:
In Reno, if love hurts, divorce can be murder. When Charlie Chan sets out to solve the murder of an unhappily married socialite, he soon discovers that "til death do us part" can be a deadly vow to break. As the legendary detective squares off against desperate divorcées, murderous mistresses and blackhearted blackmailers, he quickly begins to suspect that when it comes to America's divorce capital, "happily ever after" may be the greatest casualty of all.
