Synopsis

Plot

Your same is RICHARD HANWAY, a retired mining engineer, bored with having a life of inactivity in London. That is all about to change when one evening in early May an American named Scadder, who lived in the flat above your own, suddenly bursts into your living-room with an unbelievable tale of killers, spies and murder!!!

He is in such a state that you allow him to take refuge in your flat. Over the next couple of days he tells you about a secret organisation known as "The Black Stone" and about a little black book pinpointing the location of their headquarters - the book was written in code of course!

Returning late one evening, from your club, you find the American lying an the floor of your flat - dying of stab wounds.

The only course open to you to continue the fight against Scadder's murderers and, as the circumstances surrounding his death could make YOU the logical suspect, you resolve to journey to Scotland the very next day. After all, had Scadder not already informed you that the anarchists have a "hide-out" there? Unbeknown to you, however, there are TWO men watching your flat. Are they the killers??? It will be up to you to discover the truth behind this and many other puzzling situations ... Are YOU up to the challenge???

Notes

It is unclear whether this is inspired by the 1935 Hitchcock movie or the 1915 novel.
