"There are two people in Nick's hot tub. One is Nick's wife. The other is his former best friend. They are very naked-and very dead. Some of the cops think the killer is someone very close to Nick. The others are sure the killer is Nick. Where's a good alibi when you need it?"
This was a good crime noir book set in southern California. It took me a while to realize that the cover was a close-up of an audio cassette. I especially liked the way Nick heard clues in the audio such as the first two numbers of a phone number based on the tones.
