Priscilla Dean was at her best when she was playing lady crooks, and in this entertaining mystery, no one is quite sure which side she's on until the very end. Jewel collector Wilson Travers (John Bowers) lives with his brother, Mortimer (Arthur Hoyt), whose passion is studying fish. The police have received a tip that jewel thieves are sneaking about the Travers' home and, not long after, Marie Duquesne (Dean) drops through a skylight of the house, dressed in a bridal gown. She claims that she is escaping from an unwanted marriage and Wilson offers to let her stay at the house. Marie starts snooping around suspiciously and passing off notes to strange men. In spite of her behavior, Wilson manages to fall in love with her. The real thief, it turns out, is James the butler (Gustave Von Seyffertitz) -- Marie unmasks him when she reveals herself to be a member of the secret service. She and Wilson end the film together.
