Archie Goodwin is asked to stand-in for a sick friend at a dinner party for unwed mothers. The hospitality is lavish, the girls are friendly and the hosts filthy rich. When one of the girls, Faith, falls dead, apparently by her own hand, Archie makes himself very unpopular by announcing that the death is not in fact suicide but murder! Archie and Wolfe investigate the crime.
