Banker Stephen Lee (Marc MacDermott) becomes involved with a married woman, Mrs. Philip Mason (Christine Mayo), and encourages her to spend her husband's money on a bad stock investment. As a result she commits suicide, and Lee then makes a play for Mrs. Trent (Suzanne Colbert), who had written him some frivolous letters when she was single. She doesn't welcome his attention and asks her friend, Helen O'Neil (Yvonne Delva), to get the letters back. Helen goes to Lee, but while she is trying to wrestle the letters away from him he is mysteriously stabbed in the back. Edwards Wales (George Deneubourg), a friend of Lee's and also of Willy Grosby, Helen's fiancé (Creighton Hale), decides to look into the murder. He calls on Madame LaGrange, a clairvoyant (Marie Shotwell), and she recognizes Helen as her own daughter. During a seance, Wales is stabbed in the back just like Lee, and Helen becomes a serious suspect. Madame LaGrange skillfully tricks the real killer -- Philip Mason -- into confessing. The mystery was filmed twice during the talkie era, in 1929 and 1937.
