Mason, whose father was once the masseur of choice to Winston Churchill, learned the trade from the elder Mason and traveled the world massaging such diverse luminaries as Egypts King Farouk, Italys Primo Carnera, and Marilyn Monroe. When Guzzo, the crime-busting managing editor of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, let it be known to informants that he was looking for an habitu of West Coast houses of prostitution to provide information on the heavy drug traffic in and out of the houses, Mason responded. In the process, however, Guzzo found himself more intrigued by Masons extraordinary life story than in his service as an informant. Eventually, he served both purposes. This true story is the result. In addition to his long service as masseur to royalty and other celebrities, Mason also appeared in British films and was once married to Vera Day, who was known as Britains Marilyn Monroe. Needless to say, the Cockney masseur was also a ladies man in every sense of the term.
