Professors Joe Birnoff and Karl Teasdale, the odd couple of the economics profession, are hoping for a quiet spring break at a stately nineteenth centry hotel on Florida's Gulf Coast but a bitterly contested take-over fight at a shareholders' meeting at a hotel arrests their vacation fun. A British publishing magnate is seeking to gain control of prestigious Art World magazine, and economic as well as artistic controversies abound. When the boardroom bickering escalates to murder, Joe and Karl become amateur detectives, attempting to sort out the (mostly) economic motives of the suspects. The collaboration between Keynsian Birnoff and monetarist Teasdale unravel many an economic mystery as well as the solution to the crime.
