When ex-film star John Ray Horn is approached by a woman in a seedy bar, he can't place her. By the time he realizes it's Rose Galen, she's disappeared. Young, beautiful, and improbably talented for her B-movie surroundings, Rose played the female lead in Horn's second film. But something happened to her years ago that left her broken. Hoping to uncover her long-kept secret, Horn goes to visit Rose at her shabby rooming house...and finds she's been strangled to death.

With the help of his former sidekick, the Indian Joseph Mad Crow, Horn sets out to unmask Rose's killer. But they must first determine what happened to her one night long ago -- back in the silent-film era of the 1920s -- at a wild party attended by both celebrities and racketeers. A night that left one young actress dead and several people guarding a terrible secret...
