In chapter four of A Woman in Grey, Ruth Hope (Arline Pretty) is saved in the nick of time from the fast-approaching train by a quick-witted railroad employee. None the worse for wear, the plucky girl then attends the Amory housewarming party -- much to the dismay of Paula Wynne (Margaret Fielding), Amory's (John Heenan) niece and Ruth's rival for the attention of handsome secretary Tom Thurston (Henry G. Sell). Paula attempts to influence her uncle by offering the possibility that Ruth is actually vanished servant girl Mary Edwards. It was Mary whose testimony convicted Florence Haynes in the killing of her mother, the Amory housekeeper. How else, Paula inquires, would Ruth know enough details to publish a book on the case entitled "A Woman in Grey"? Among the uninvited guests at the Amory mansion are J. Haviland Hunter (Fred Jones), Ruth's erstwhile abductor, and a couple of henchmen. Soon everyone is busy chasing down the famous Amory code. During the hunt Ruth is caught off guard by Hunter's thugs, who devise a clever noose that is rigged to strangle the girl if anyone enters the room.
