On a New York City-bound plane, Charlie Chan greets a friend, Inspector Hugh Drake, military intelligence, formerly with Scotland Yard, who shows Chan a newspaper headline referring to aircraft sabotage. He details to Charlie the sabotage was directed to the British colonies and now to the United States, by a certain individual named Paul Narvo, heading the ring of saboteurs and his Hindu servant named Ramallah.

The man has eluded him to date. The inspector has also been tracking the suspect’s wife around the globe, believing now, she is in New York. He divulges to Chan, he has the man’s fingerprints and photograph, and the same of his wife in his briefcase.

Starred by Sidney Toler, Marjorie Weaver, Robert Lowery
