Harry's courtship soon takes a dark turn, however, when Madame Dauvray turns up gruesomely murdered, a fortune's worth of jewels missing from her room, and Celia nowhere to be found. Fortunately for Harry, he has connections to the brilliant Inspector Hanaud, a detective from the Paris Sucete. Soon the stout sleuth is on the case, vowing to follow the truth no matter where it leads. Is Celia as innocent as Harry believes? Or does her beautiful face mask the black heart of a killer?
