Colonel Middleton is preparing to leave the service in India when he receives a summons from Sir John Danvers. He knows he can trust no one else to deliver a bag of priceless looted jewels to the second son of a woman he once loved. Middleton accepts the package and starts for England. Hours later, Sir John is murdered in his bed. During the next few weeks, the colonel has a series of "coincidental" near misses as he travels by ship and train to reach the Danvers family home and fulfill his quest. After an evening of amateur dramatics, a burglary, and a violent snowstorm the Colonel's story comes to an end.
