George Gideon is a very busy detective in London. He decides to take a break - a holiday with his wife - after a long time. They travel aboard a ship to New York but he is not spared during his trip. A lady is missing on board.
George Gideon, Commander of the C.I.D., is met at the office one morning with the news of a sex maniac, a mass murderer and a fire in an old tenement building out at Lambeth. "Whole family was wiped out - mother, five kids, and the father. Several other people burned and suffering from shock, and whole building was gutted - place went up like a match box . . . One of our chaps looks like being the eighth victim . . . But the worst of it is, George, it was arson. Started with petrol. No doubt about it." With all these urgent problems filling his day, Gideon has little time to spare for an ugly family crisis building up in his own home . . .
