With black artists and intellectuals as well as wealthy white patrons and, of course, the murderers themselves in attendance, LaBas and his fellow "jacklegged detective" Black Herman crash the party and confront the guilty parties, but before LaBas can apprehend the two men, "Hank Rollings the Guianese art critic" insists, "We won't yield these gentlemen until you explain rationally and soberly what they are guilty of" (160).
