The Women's Club of Broward's Rock prides itself on the success of its annual White Elephant Sale. But htis year's sale is marred by a bizarre turn. A sly black mailer coerces five of the town's most prominent citizens into donateing valuable artifacts--or some very unflattering information about the individuals might be revealed. When a volunteer fails to reurn the pick-up van, Henny Brwaley, Annie's best customer and chood chum, drives off to find the missing woman, just as a powerful squall hits the island. Hours later, a worried Annie goes off in search of Henny, only to find the corpse of the missing volunteer. The victim turns out to be the blackmailer, and despite Annie's protests, the new police cheif suspects Henny of the murder. Convinced of their friend's innocence, Annie and Max hobnob with the island's smart set to determine who among them has a secret they would go to any length to protect.
