Kent Buckley is preoccupied by the thoughts of Leeora, a woman who is out of his reach. She’s the wife of another, and when her husband, Charles discovers the affair a fight ensues. Travelling arrangements had been made, and it lends itself to a way to dispose of the body, and let Kent pose as Charles as the couple sets sail.
Panic is already lurking under the surface, but complications grow when details seem to conspire to ruin the plan. Will Kent be stopped by someone who knows the real Charles? Will there be trouble in finding the steamer trunk with Charles body in it? The hurdles of the plan seem to be going there way. Almost. There’s still the matter of disposing the body, now that the faked suicide went over.
All that remains is the twist ending to this perfect plan. Will Kent and Leeora be caught? Will they befall a fate that brings poetic justice down on their heads? Panic explodes when the trunk with the body in it is gone.
Note: Elliot Lewis is Kent. Luraine Tuttle is Leeora.
