Synopsis

Gilbert Crayle, a wealthy diamond merchant, purchases the ancestral castle of Rupert Endon, a bankrupt English aristocrat who has won the love of Eve Marley, once engaged to Crayle. Eve's brother, Lord Adrian, schemes with Crayle to have Endon falsely accused of stealing a diamond; and to save Endon from prison, Eve agrees to marry Crayle. Endon escapes and by cargo steamer goes to China, where he acquires the reputation of a fearless adventurer. Through the auspices of Li Fang and a gang of cutthroats, he discovers a diamond mine in the jungle and with his fortune returns to London to seek revenge. He creates a furore in the financial world and brings Crayle to the brink of ruin; in a confrontation, Crayle is shot; but Lolah, a native girl who loves Endon, admits to the crime and kills herself to escape capture.
