It all starts with a missing fur beret. Connie's dashing young aunt, stylist for Campion's is deeply concerned. The hat, a Paris original, is fabulously expensive.

Why was Grace, the little stock girl, sobbing in terror in the model's dressing room? Most important of all, what unknown enemy is trying to cast the shadow of suspicion on Aunt Bet?
Determined to find the culprit, Connie enlists the aid of Larry Stewart, the young display man, and finally comes face to face with a far more ruthless enemy than she had ever imagined in her wildest dreams.
