About to be married to his fiancée Joanne, private investigator Michael Shayne hears a scream near her residential hotel room; investigating, he finds two corpses at a nice dinner table dressed in costume. Shayne puts off the wedding for a bit, and accepts money from both a newspaper and a probable suspect to identify the murderer. Everyone involved is connected to a play that was produced several years earlier in the building next door. Very good B mystery.
