Psychologist Dr. asil Willing is confronted by murder on an opening night in a New York City theatre. The revival of Fedora, starring popular but hypocritical Wanda Morley, ends with the discovery of a real and unknown corpse. Willing uses all pulls to unearth the facts; he discovers the identity of the man, his relation to Wands and to other members of the cost. There's a second murder and Willing interprets each suspect's part -- and finally apprehends the killer in a blackout. Eminently fair, smooth and sleek job of grey matter exercise.
