Herbert Lang, bank clerk, and one with plenty of time on his hands to calculate how to overcome his low paying job. Over worked, and overdue for a vacation, the mild mannered man knows its time to spring his plan. It may even be time to propose to his girlfriend, Hazel.
Though his boss has complete trust in him, the board of directors refuses to give Herbert a raise. Instead, he is to be retired, given a bonus, and only two weeks notice. Can Herbert reach his goal before then, and retire on his own terms?
Suddenly, Hazel sees through Herbert’s plan. He has been embezzling money, not investing in stocks. Will she refuse to marry him, and go as far as turn him in? On the cruise out of the country, Herbert is unsettled by his troubles. When Hazel ends up overboard, Herbert has some explaining to do. Has Herbert gotten away to his South American port? A little paranoia, and guilty conscious goes a long way for the kind of justice the Whistler is glad to dish out.
