Jimmy Sutane is London's favorite song-and-dance man, headlining at the Argosy Theatre, and beloved by all. Or almost all: Someone has taken to playing increasingly nasty pranks. Albert Campion, that peculiar young man with the knack for solving problems, offers to poke around, but what he finds chez Sutane nearly overwhelms him. The far-from traditional household features a clutch of explosive egos, including a brooding "genius musician," and a melodramatic young actress who seems to delight in drawing others into her web of carefully groomed tragedy.
