An out-of-work acator who's been around New York a little too long not to have made it, Peter keeps hoping for the big break. But when it comes, it isn't via the Shubert Organization or the Merrick office. It's in the person of a lady of mystery who's take a shine to Peter-and is willing to pay to consummate it.
Almost overnight, Peter finds himself sitting pretty - as co-producer and casting director for a crew of male performers whose stage is the bedroom whose leading lady changes with every scene.
No matter that his girl friend rejects him on moral grounds. No matter that the Mob is moving in on his enterprise. No matter that a net of corruption and potential horror is tightening around him. Peter's still on top of the world and happy at last - until the day fate wlaks on the stage, and the fireworks begin.
Luxury and murder, lust and love; a hardy brew, brimming with suspense and surprise.
