Hack writer Joe Sneed has been ordered by his boss, Miss Snood, to grind out yet another mystery about Trixie True, "America's foremost amateur sleuth"

Trixie, beloved of America's teens, is able to solve capers that baffle the F.B.I., and Joe is sick of her. So, he begins one last mystery - which will finish off Trixie for good

The bulk of this clever show, then, becomes "The Mystery of the Tapping Shoes", in which Our Heroine is called on by the F.B.I. to break a Nazi spy ring

Turns out, the spy is Madame Olga, Trixie's tap dance teacher, who tries to blow up Trixie by planting a bomb in her tap shoes. When this fails, Olga puts Trixie in a submarine with a bomb and sets it on a course for the Statue of Liberty

At this point, Joe realizes he has to save Trixie to save his job, and his romantic chances with Miss Snood. Of course, he finds a way for Trixie to save herself. There isn't a theatre audience in America who wouldn't love this show!
