The story is driven by the main character who is Bigby Wolf a.k.a. "The Big Bad Wolf".
Bigby is called to an apartment building by Mr. Toad due to a commotion being made by the Woodsman in an upstairs apartment. There, Bigby stops the intoxicated Woodsman from attacking a young woman. After fighting with the Woodsman and knocking him out, Bigby talks with the woman, believing she is a prostitute, and helps to make sure she is safe. Bigby returns to his Woodlands apartment in Fabletown to rest, and he goes to sleep after a discussion with Colin, one of the Three Little Pigs on how people are terrified of him, only for Bigby to be woken up by Snow White, who has discovered a decapitated head on the steps of Woodlands; Bigby is shocked to discover it is the head of the woman he saved earlier. Clues on the head lead them to identify her as a fable from the Allerleirauh story; her name was Faith and she had been married to Prince Lawrence. They are about to go to Lawrence's apartment when Mr. Toad calls and warns Bigby that someone is ransacking the Woodsman's apartment. They investigate both locations.
At Lawrence's they find that he had attempted suicide before learning of Faith's death, feeling he had not provided her with a good life, but he has a chance to survive if the player chooses to investigate Lawrence before Mr. Toad; at Toad's, they find that he had been pressured by Dee and Dum Tweedle, working for an unknown employer, to search for a mysterious object that the Woodsman was believed to have. Without any other clues, Bigby decides to find the Woodsman to discover his role in the murder, while Snow White returns home to Fabletown.
Bigby heads to the Trip Trap bar, the Woodsman's usual drinking spot, to find its owner Holly and barfly Grendel to be covering for the Woodsman's apparent absence. When the Woodsman comes out of the bathroom, Bigby tries to talk to him but Grendel transforms into his fable form and attacks Bigby. The two fight, but Bigby, partially transforming into his wolf form, gains the upper hand. Just as he is about to take the Woodsman in for questioning, Dee Tweedle enters the bar, also looking for the Woodsman; on seeing Bigby, both he and the Woodsman attempt escape. Bigby is forced to go after one, arresting him for suspicion of murder charges. Bigby takes his catch back to Woodlands, but finds the place surrounded by human police. He sneaks through to discover Snow White's head on the steps of the apartment.
Bigby is taken in by the mundy police, who have also found White's body; during their interrogation, Mr. Crane uses a memory loss spell on the entire station to extract Bigby as well as the body and the case file from police custody, to ensure the police will forget the case ever existed. Back at the Business Office, Bigby takes over from the more aggressive Bluebeard and begins to interrogate the suspect only to have Snow White, still alive, walk in on them, and she explains that the victim they thought was her was actually a lookalike. After his initial shock, Bigby goes with Snow to talk to TJ, who had witnessed the body being dumped in the river by unidentified men that were suppressing laughter. Bigby and Snow examine the body and find it is really Lily, Holly's sister disguised by a cheap and black-market glamour. After informing Holly of Lily's murder, Bigby goes to Georgie's strip club where Lily last worked, learning there that Lily's last client at a nearby seedy hotel was a "Mr. Smith". Bigby goes to the hotel and is surprised to find Beauty working there as a clerk secretly from the Beast to earn rent money, and doesn't want to create any more strife in their marriage.
As Beauty escorts Bigby to the room where Lily met Mr. Smith, Beast appears and believes that Beauty is cheating on him with Bigby. During a fight, they break down the door to the room to discover a murder scene. Beast quickly backs off as Bigby examines the scene, finding that someone had attempted to dress Lily and play out the mundy version of the Snow White fairy tale. A last check of the room reveals an envelope of photographs revealing that Mr. Smith was really Mr. Crane. Crane, seeing this through the Magic Mirror, takes the lamp from the "Aladdin" fairy tale and smashes the mirror with it.
Fearing for Snow's safety, Bigby makes his way to where Snow and other Fables are holding a funeral for Lily, and tells Snow of his suspicions. As the funeral proceeds, the Tweedle Brothers arrive and tell Bigby to drop his case against Crane. When the others see the Tweedles, a confrontation breaks outs, wounding Bigby and an enraged Holly and Grendal before the Tweedles escape. Bigby and Snow return to the Business Office to try to determine where Crane may have gone, their efforts stymied by the broken Magic Mirror missing one piece. Bluebeard arrives and demands that Bigby and Snow take action.
The three discuss three possible leads when Bufkin reveals Crane had an appointment for "his witch" early the next morning. The three tenuously agree to investigate three possible leads: Crane's apartment, Lily's possessions, and the Tweedles' office. Bigby learns that Crane has been embezzling money from Fables, and has been working with a witch name Greenleaf to obtain the glamours he used. After locating her apartment and arrives too later, Bigby and Snow confront Greenleaf, who assures them Crane had just left to the Pudding N Pie to try to use a defunct ring on the prostitutes there to force them to speak to his innocence. Bigby and Snow got to the Pudding N Pie, and find Crane attempting to sway the prostitutes with no luck. As Bigby accosts him with his crimes, Snow comes to realize that Crane is likely innocent of the murder of Faith and Lily despite other crimes against Fabletown. As they leave the club with Crane, Bigby and Snow are boxed into an alley by Bloody Mary and the Tweedles, all working under the Crooked Man.
Mary demands they turn over Crane, and after Bigby refuses, the Tweedles shot him, eventually forcing him to transform into the Big Bad Wolf. The Wolf severally injures the Tweedles, but Mary then shoots him with a silver bullet, stunning him. Snow is forced to give up Crane while she attends to Bigby.
