They take a room in a local hotel and a murder is committed in an adjoining room to Keith. The latter hears the gunfire, goes to investigate and is there when the local police arrive. He and Casey are both held on suspicion of murder and jailed. While a local policeman is going through their luggage at the hotel, he discovers a letter of introduction, in Keith's suitcase, that reads: "It is requested that all official courtesy be extended to Mr. Geoffrey Desmond, Chief Inspector of the Criminal Investigation Department of the London Matropolitan Police, during his journey on a dangerous secret mission." The letter is a stage-prop from the play the two actors had just performed in, but the Police Chief thinks it is real, releases them from jail and Keith decides to stay on and help the local boobies solve the murder. He has a vested-interest in doing so as a girl he had met on the bus-trip, Julie Graham, is the daughter of the man the District Attorney has now charged with the crime, and Keith stays to help Julie clear her father of the charges.
