Taking a break from her duties as lady's maid for a week, Jane Prescott is attending the hottest and most scandalous art exhibition in New York City: the 1913 Armory Show, showcasing the cubists. Heiress Dolly Rutherford is putting on a play with Jane's employer Louise Tyler in the starring role, and Jane is torn between helping with their costumes and enjoying her holiday. But fate decides she will do neither, when a woman is murdered outside Jane's childhood home—a refuge for women run by her uncle, who becomes a suspect. In her third case (after Death of a New American) Jane joins reporter Michael Behan and pianist Leo Hirschfeld to trail a killer who is making death into a twisted art form.
