Summary Fabric shop owner Polyester Monroe can get tangled up in textiles, but it's murder that really throws her for a loop. The time has come for San LadrĂ³n, California's annual Miss Tangorli beauty pageant, and Poly has agreed to use Material Girl's inventory of shimmery silks to create embellished gowns fit for a crown. But when millionaire Harvey Halliwell--the man who revived the city's citrus trade with his imported tangorli tree--is found dead days before the pageant contestants are announced, something sour takes over the town. To make matters worse, her friend, mechanic Charlie Brooks, is soon caught up in the crime, having been seen in the company of the case's prime suspect. Now Poly's on a mission to squeeze out the truth. But as she searches for a pattern, the killer seems intent on cutting up the evidence.
