Dot's sister, Lola, visits and implores Phryne to investigate the murder of fellow showgirl Lavinia. Meanwhile, Jack's ex-wife begs him to take over the investigation of a murder in which her father apparently killed the woman inside a locked room. Jack and Phryne meet at the crime scene where it seems impossible for another to have committed the crime. Phryne goes undercover as a fan dancer and Jack visits the bordello (where the rich and powerful go to play and the police are definitely not welcome) to try to catch the real killer.
