Welcome to Wilde City, 1924.

The mystery of love?

The domineering actress, Dominique Darlington, has vanished without a trace, the opening night of the theater's new production of The Snake Charmer's Slave is now in jeopardy, and six suspects are about to have the pleasure of meeting Buck Baxter, Private Detective, as he investigates whether there's a killer on the loose... or a phantom at the opera?
