Clara Rhodes finds her daughter, movie star Roberta Rhodes, dead in her bedroom, apparently of an overdose. Quincy remains unconvinced. Then Paul Reardon, a journalist, tells Quincy he can prove Congressman Charles Sinclair was with Roberta the night she died. Sinclair is an old friend of Quincy's, so Quincy must face the unpleasant possibility that his old friend may be linked to a murder. Quincy must sort through a maze of lies and half-truths to discover what really happened.
