Susan is on the board of directors of the Port City Theater Company. When the Artistic Director complains about a stalker, Susan asks Spenser to accompany her to the theater to check out the situation.
After talking to the Director, Spenser agrees to take on the case and he and Susan attend the play. In the middle of the production, an actor is shot and killed and so a homicide investigation begins.
Spenser decides to interview each board member. This straight forward process turns complicated when the husband of a board member (a Boston tong) warns Spenser to drop the case.
The threat prompts him to call in Hawk and Vinnie for backup.
They soon discover large numbers of Chinese illegals are being brought into the area. The the Chief of Police has been bought off by the Tong and refuses to take action. Another murder and a possible kidnapping add to the confusion. Everything comes together, but not until some unexpected plot twists lead to a surprise ending.
