She is pursued at home by Mrs. Craven-Spitz, a twice-divorced actress with a bad reputation. Ruth refuses to cast her for the movie even though Spitz claims that the company CEO had recommended her earlier that morning. An explosion in the studio requires Ruth to rent another one in order to stay on schedule. (Note: By this time I have read half the book. Now I must leave you to finish it on your own). By coincidence I worked part-time at the Toledo Blade 1966-69, while Mrs. Benson, who had married the editor, cranked out obituaries in another department. We never met. Mrs. Benson also wrote several Nancy Drew, Dana Girls, Ruth Darrow, Kay Tracey, Penny Parker, Penny Nichols, Connie Carl, and Madge Stirling series instalments. 210 pp. plus ads.
