Perry is hired to help foster the career of singer Sandy Chester. The man hiring Perry wants his name kept secret. Perry contacts Clete Hawley to do the job but Clete's actions cause him to regret it. Sandy is charged when Clete is killed.
Perry Mason has been asked by his wealthy client, Cameron Burgess, to act as a go-between in making arrangements for a young man, Sandy Chester, to become a pop star. Sandy sings at a small club run by Henny McLeod, an old time entertainer, who has taken Sandy under her wing. Cameron gives Perry $5000 to hire an agent, Clete Hawley, but has instructed Perry that he wishes to remain anonymous. Hawley is a wheeler-dealer in the music industry claiming he can turn anyone into a star. He also takes advantage of his clients and has a reputation of ruining the careers of anyone who crosses him. He's also used blackmail and forced a talented song writer, Riff Lawler, to work for him for nearly nothing. When Riff's daughter pulls a stunt to have Sandy sing Riff's new song which becomes a hit, Clete forces Riff to turn all rights to the song over to him. Perry becomes disenchanted with Clete so he tries to persuade Cameron to drop Clete but Cameron is unwilling and unable. It's no surprise when Hawley is found dead but when the police charge young Sandy with murder, Perry defends him.
