Private detective J. Barker-Rynde receives a call from wealthy widow Margaret Clifford, asking him to investigate questionable occurrences at a health-cure hotel in the country. Upon arrival, he finds that his client has been murdered and her secretary, Frances Reitman, nearly killed from poisoning. Forced to pose as a guest and eat health foods in his quest for the murderer, Rynde joins forces with Rumbelow, a health instructor, in the hope that they can solve the case and split any reward money. The sleuths initially suspect the dead woman's nephew, the resort's director, and a nurse. Finally they discover that Reitman is the guilty party. With the case solved, Mrs. Clifford's will is read, revealing that all her money has been bequeathed to her dog.
