Jessica is the first women to speak at a function at an all-male club, then a member is murdered.
Jessica happily accepts her New York friend Winston Devermore's invitation to be the first female author/guest speaker at the previously exclusive male bastion Avernus club. Ruthless, rude businessman Lawrence Cayle is ostracized for 'un-brotherly' (adulterous) conduct, but Harcourt Fenton refuses to join the collective vendetta proclaimed. Lawrence gets wind and still agrees to meet the secretly selected 'enforcer' at midnight in Avernus, but is shot with a club sports gun. Winston asks Jessica to help him find the killer before NYPD lieutenant Howard Tartarus collectively charges the executive committee. Shortly after, Harcourt dies in a car accident, his passenger Winston is seriously hurt (the accident is a result of sabotage).
Having recently read some of her works at the prestigious - and all male - Avenus Club, Jessica is subsequently asked by her friend Winston Devermore to help solve the murder of one of the club's members, Lawrence Cayle. The man had been sanctioned by the club's 5 man committee for his treatment of another member of the club over a business deal and one of them is secretly selected to enforce what he feels is an appropriate penalty. There are several possible suspects but Jessica notices that the voting - done with white and black marbles - simply doesn't add up. Another club member will die however before Jessica figures it all out.
