Summary
Brilliant painter Paul Sorodin dies; indecently close to death's heels come Sorodin's relatives, his business manager and others who, their grief not entirely untinged with greed, anxiously await the reading of the will.

Also on hand with revelations of their own are an eccentric Russian Princess, an ex-show girl, an Eleventh Hour Immersionist and a mute but effective gentleman named Fabrice. Before they get through, reputations are arranged and rearranged.
