A mysterious sideshow charlatan named Count Merlin reads the palm of a woman and tells her of how she once had cheated on her husband and stole his child away. Stunned by hearing that, she leaves. Count Merlin is in fact, her long-estranged husband in disguise. Her friend encourages her to have a party at her house and to invite Count Merlin to perform his magic act. When he is invited, murder ensues and it is his ex-wife who is the victim.
