Variety hall actress Ophelia Flax knows how to win over an audience. That's why she's accepted the marriage proposal of the brutish Comte de Griffe to nettle her occasional investigative partner and romantic sparring partner the pompous if dashing Professor Penrose.

She intends to disengage from her feral fiance at his winter hunting party until Penrose, his "lovely" new fiancee, and a stagecoach of stranded travelers arrive at the comte's sprawling chateau. Soon she can t tell the boars from the bores.
When one of the guests is found clawed and bloody in the "orangerie," Ophelia is determined to solve the murder before everyone starts believing the local version of "Beauty and the Beast."
