A beautiful girl seeks the help of an attorney when her father vanishes. Soon, her aunt also disappears from a locked house in the dead of the night. The search leads to the infamous White Cat, a nightclub frequented by crooked politicians ... and now, murder. The Window at the White Cat is another in the famous "Had-I-But-Known School" of mysteries founded by Mary Roberts Rinehart with the publication in 1908 of her first work, The Circular Staircase. The focus of these stories is the Gothic heroine-always in the wrong place at the wrong time trusting the wrong people.
