  • Multiple Suspects, but one Murder

    This case had multiple suspects. This had me guessing right up until the end.

    Jill was undercover as a centerfold Feline Magazine, Sabrina a old friend of their client Tony. Kelly uncovers evidence that Earhard knew the mishaps going on at Tony's establishment. Kelly blackmailed Earhard and went to an abandoned oil refinery. Earhard pulled a gun on Kelly, but with back up from Sabrina, Jill, and Bosely Earhard is apprehended.

    The Angels and Charlie believed they have caught the Killer. However Kelly and Sabrina realize that all along they thought the Killer was a man. They conclude that the only woman who had access to Jill's apartment was Paula.

    Kelly and Sabrina drive over to Paula's apartment. Paula puts up a fight. Just as Paula is about to jump off the balcony realized the motive was Paula was in an accident that burned her right side and she could never grow back her hair. The motive is the women centerfolds were beautiful and to make them less beautiful she cut their hair off and kill them as well.

  • The Title Says It All!

    Centerfolds are being chloroformed to death, and having their hair cut off, and Charlie is an old friend of the Hugh Hefner (Hugh O'Brien) like owner. Jill goes undercover as a waitress, Kelly as a Singer, and Sabrina hangs around Hugh's house despite being a good ten years older then his usual guests. The business manager tries to kill Hugh with a booby trapped bed, but he's a red herring. After an attack on Jill at her house she agrees to stay with a former Centerfold who turns out to be the killer because she wasn't pretty anymore after an accident.

    Unanswered questions . . .

    1. Why can't Jill just stay at Sabrina's or Kelly's?

    2. Why can Jill fight off someone trying to chloroform her in the middle of the night, but can't while taking a nap in the afternoon?moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Kelly: I really don't like being the bait.
      Jill: (over the intercom) Well, how do you think I felt since we started this thing?

    • Jill: (Posing as a waitress) Hello. Would you like to order dinner now?
      Grey-Haired Man: Sure, if you're on the menu.
      Jill: (Laughing sarcastically) I bet you were up all night thinking up that one.

    • Sabrina: (speaking to Tony) I tell you what. Cheer up. As soon as I'm out of here, you can run right down to the local high school and check out the graduating class.

    • Carmel: You look like you've spent a lot of time on the beach.
      Sabrina: Me? Yeah, you're right I have. I bet you'd like it there. Probably find somebody your own age to hang around with.

    • Charlie: (explaining to the Angels on what there assignment is) That's where you come in.
      Kelly: As centerfolds?
      Charlie: Kelly, when you took this job you knew that there would be a lot of undercover work.
      Jill: That's not undercover? That's not any cover at all.

  • NOTES (1)

    • The Angels learn a lesson about gender assumption when they fail to acknowledge the possibility that a woman can be killing centerfolds. The Feline Magazine and the Feline Clubs are derivative of Playboy, right down to the ears and tails worn by the waitresses.
