A sinister con man, Roat, and two ex-convicts, Mike and Carlino, are about to meet their match. They have traced the location of a mysterious doll to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his wife, Susy, who is blind. Sam was persuaded by a strange woman to transport the doll across the Canadian border, not knowing that sewn inside were several grams of heroin.


The con men convince Susy that the police have implicated Sam in the woman’s murder, and the doll is evidence and the key to Sam’s innocence. Susy refuses to reveal its location, and with the help of a young neighbor, figures out she is the victim of a bizarre charade. Susy knows the only way to play fair is by her rules, maneuvering in the dark until the game ends.


A Broadway hit, this masterfully-constructed thriller moves from one moment of suspense to another as it builds toward an electrifying, breath-stopping final scene.
