Charles Venables, journalist and ex-detective, is looking for lodgings in London and decides to investigate the Garden Hotel in Kensington, where his friend Lady Viola is also staying. Some of the other guests are less amenable, however, and Charles's suspicions are instantly aroused when the first thing he hears on approaching the hotel is a threat of murder. Shortly afterwards, the hotel's proprietor, Mrs. Budge, is attacked and apparently kidnapped. A further gruesome discovery reveals that a ruthless killer is at work in this quiet corner of London - and soon Charles finds himself revisiting his previous vocation as he joins forces with his old acquaintance Inspector Bray to solve the sensational mystery of the Garden Hotel!
