It is a late example of Edgar Wallace film adaptations that were particularly popular in Germany during the 1960s.

However, after a Scotland Yard detective is murdered while entering Forrester's office in London, the Scotland Yard chief Sir Philipp (Siegfried Schürenberg) hands the case to Jane Morgan (Soledad Miranda), an attractive agent, while given its international priority, Secret Intelligence Service will be on the case. Now, on a secret mission and with double identity as the young stripper wife of the British consul Irving Lambert (Alberto Dalbés), Morgan arrives in South America. Meanwhile, she meets Rex Forrester (Fred Williams), professor's nephew who is also concerned of his fate and arrives in the country for further investigation.
