At the start of World War I, German imperial troops burn down a mission in Africa. The mission's clergyman was so overtaken with disappointment that he passes away.

The boat is manned by the ill-mannered bachelor, Charlie. Together they embark on a long difficult journey, without any comfort. Rose grows determined to assist in the British war effort and presses Charlie until he finally agrees and together they steam up the Ulana encountering an enemy fort, raging rapids, bloodthirsty parasites and an endlessly branching stream which always seems to lead them to what appear to be impenetrable swamps.

In the Number One Criminal Court of the Old Bailey, the accused man, Guy Stevenson, is fighting for his life. During his dramatic plea to the jury, he constantly refers to "The Assize of the Dying"--An old Spanish curse often invoked by people when they are wrongly sentenced. Sitting listening to the trial are Mark Brett, half-brother of the murdered woman, and Margaret Manton, ward of the judge. Later, after Stevenson has been found guilty and sentenced to death, Mark and Margaret get to know each other over a cup of tea in a nearby cafe. They soon discover that they are both convinced that Stevenson has been wrongly convicted and that the Spanish curse may now begin to work. They do not have long to wait before "The Assize of the Dying" starts to claim its victims. As they leave the cafe, they see the foreman of the jury run over and killed by a van, and a little later they learn that Stevenson has died of a heart attack in prison. On an impulse, Mark and Margaret decide to try to prove Stevenson's innocence. Their amateur detective work leads them to re-construct the crime and ends with an unexpected meeting in a bombed churchyard of all those connected with the trial to eventually uncover the real murderer
