Plot

Unscrupulous casino owner Anton Sebastian secretly runs a network of spies. After doing away with one of them, Victor Demetrius, he uses a dancer, Raquel, on a dangerous assignment to intercept British intelligence agent Tony Carleton and steal some top-secret documents.

Tony catches the eye of an admirer, Carol Vincent, who follows him onto a train, then again after he gets off. Tony has been drugged and robbed by Rosita and sets out to get the documents back.

At the hotel, Raquel decides to trust Tony and tell him who's behind this sinister plot when she is murdered. Sebastian attempts to make Tony's death look like a suicide due to gambling losses, but when that plan goes awry, Sebastian flees for his life, then plunges in a car off a cliff to his death.
