In Deerview, Washington, Jerry Price dies in a suspicious accident shortly after a love triangle among local and Californian students there went sour. His flippant sister Ann Price decides to blame his last flirt, immature pianist Sharon McKay.

Detective Porter is played and outsmarted repeatedly, for Ann's plan proves twisted and her victims fight back, only leading up to further twists.
