Promised an original, Jessica travels to Paris for her friend fashion-designer Eva Taylor's first high-profile show. Only her devoted assistant Peter Appleyard assisted when Eva's investor, Maxim Soury, extorted a 50-50 deal not to pull the plug on a loan and add $10,000 for a supermodel. Next Maxim is found shot in his hotel-room, with indications Eva did it. Jessica and gallant Paris police inspector Panassic soon find Soubry was an adulterer, known so by his wife Claudia, and a dirty pornographic extortionist with a kept mistress, bar singer Valerie Bechet, mother of model Kim.
