When the mutilated body of a murdered prostitute is discovered, Scotland Yard's Murder Squad swings into action. The scene is thus set for a 'whodunit' - until the girl supposed to have been murdered walks in.

Detective-Superintendent Bernard is sure that the marks on the body point to the work of a sex maniac until another body, this time of Freddie Sikkim, turns up, seemingly killed with the same knife.

When spy-catchers Tiger Lester and Midge are found climbing through a window in the victim's house, Bernard wonders why Special Branch is involved with a murder case. Lester and Midge begin to tell a very different story; one of international espionage. But how did a missing railway timetable eventually lead the pair into the path of Bernard's case?
