A dancer turns up dead in her hotel room and an investigation begins into the motive for the murder. Her room mate suggests that she might have been using her feminine wiles to advance her career and may have taken her onto stages she was ill-prepared to dance upon.

A fairly good story and I wasn't able to guess who did it. Perhaps if I had been paying more attention I may have gotten it, but I doubt it. I did appreciate that it shows a little bit of the policemen's interests outside of the case, even while on the case.

The Slick And The Dead (Aired January 23, 1976) The CBS Radio Mystery Theater (or CBSRMT) was an ambitious and sustained attempt to revive the great drama of old-time radio in the 1970s
