In San Francisco for a convention, Jessica gets a call from her old friend, reformed thief Dennis Stanton. He invites her to the opera that evening but in the interim, they visit operatic star Rosanno Bertolucci. Egos are big in the opera company and an outraged Bertolucci has a fight with Lou Farraday accusing him of making advances toward the company's attractive young soprano, Maria Deschier. The argument continued after the performance when Maria claims Farraday attacked her in her dressing room. The end result is that Farraday is killed and Bertolucci suffers a severe heart attack in the process. Bertolucci claims it was self-defense on his part but police Lt. Birnbaum is skeptical. A missing windbreaker has Jessica puzzled and ultimately to her solving the case.
