On a liner homeward bound from India, a young man falls in love with a beautiful girl. Once home, there is no further contact. Soon after, a passenger from the boat is killed; then the girl is found dead in equally suspicious circumstances. Inspector McLean is assigned to the case and believes his main clue is a sketched cryptogram that was found with the girl's body. Unravelling the ambiguous meaning of the acrostic will surely provide the sole means to identifying the killer...
