A high end charity fundraiser is being held at Dino's, the private event being televised to bring further publicity. Among the highlights are the six young socialites chosen from around the country to model a total of $1 million dollars worth of jewels being loaned by jeweler, Halevy. Stuart has been hired by the insurance company to oversee the security of the jewels. After the organizers deal with a medical incident where "Miss Boston" Laura Stanley, a diabetic, goes into what is eventually deemed insulin shock, Halevy notices that the Morfield diamond necklace she was wearing, it valued at $100,000, has been replaced by a fake. The incident occurred when Stuart was dealing with another issue in the main room, namely throwing out known jewel thief, Phil Ashton.

Bevy of beauties
21 February 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This assignment is going to be a labor of love for one Gerald Kookson,III as he and Roscoe are with Stu Bailey as he gets a job acting as security for a valuable jewel collection. The jewels you see are worn around the necks of a bevy of beauties in a traveling exhibition. Only in Los Angeles one very valuable diamond is popped from its setting and the crook(s) want a hefty ransom for it.

As I said Kookie really has a problem keeping his mind on business, but serious business it is for Efrem Zimbalist. With a pair of accomplices from the show they have one clever hiding place for the jewel.

Doing this caper is a master jewel thief that the police in the person of semi-regular Byron Keith want very much to nail. Unlike a lot of mysteries there is no antagonism between the cops and the PIs. Keith works quite regularly with Bailey&Spencer and is always glad for the help.

A constant on this series.
