Mrs Gow, a noted actress and singer, has been kidnapped by persons unknown and a huge ransom demanded – a ransom which the king is either unwilling or unable to pay. Matters do not seem too serious until her missing maid is discovered beaten to death and the search takes on a deadly urgency. Suspects abound, lies are told and the redoubtable duo have several brushes with violence before the culprit is revealed.
