With a murder occurring at the Mystery Writers of America's annual dinner, the executive secretary is asked by the society to track down the killer and preserve their good name. An interesting behind the scenes look at the MWA with a bit of name dropping. The change in viewpoints from chapter to chapter serves it well, as does the atmosphere of New York and the MWA.

Not one of Hoch's best. Better than his Simon Ark series, but no where near as good as his "Night" series.
