Twenty Plus Two

Julia Joliet handles fan mail for movie stars. Now someone has a message for her, delivered at point-blank range. David Janssen (TV’s The Fugitive) brings his laconic cool to Twenty Plus Two as Tom Alder, a Los Angeles private eye who ties Joliet’s murder to the 12-year-old case of a schoolgirl heiress who went out for an ice-cream soda and never came back. As Alder pieces together the crime puzzle against a backdrop of hot jazz and hip Kennedy-era style, he edges closer to the truth…including the surprising truth about his own past.
