Private detective, Nathan Black, has been engaged to investigate the disappearance of his girlfriend's acquaintance, the fetchingly attractive Miss Nancy Pettigrew. Although a strong and independent-thinking suffragette of 1916 Nashville, a collection of postcards and a handful of store receipts weave a trail that leaves Nathan with the impression that Miss Pettigrew had fallen victim to the designs of too many men. The missing woman's "immaculate" beauty complemented by a rebellious and spirited nature bedevils the investigator and draws him into the circle of those in pursuit of her. Her unconventional ways make her alluring to those who surround her, but there is a dark dealing among those in her ring of inconspicuous admirers, and with one person, she is privy to a long-concealed secret and a deep obsession that eclipses all others. It is at the hand of that individual that she ultimately falls prey.
