Synopsis

Madame Mysteria, a fashionable medium, is killed in a train crash, and her three assistants--The Fox, Limpy Jim, and Deagon--each with a criminal record, decide not to identify the body, since the medium had extracted valuable information from her wealthy clients. The Fox produces a substitute--Jean Oliver, who has been framed by wealthy Mrs. Ramsey because of her son Donald's attentions to the girl--and Jean consents to assume the role on the condition that they help her revenge herself by kidnaping Mrs. Ramsey's grandson. Meanwhile, Gordon Grant, whom Jean loves and to whom she was previously engaged, has become an amateur sleuth; in investigating the connection between Madame Mysteria and the robberies perpetrated upon her former clients, he uncovers the swindlers and the missing Ramsey baby. Jean is cleared by a statement from Mrs. Ramsey and is reunited with Gordon.
