Plot Summary

In New York's banking house Marton and Co., a robbery was carried out, for papers worth of 2 million dollars. At first the suspect of the crime was accountant Wilbert. But, with the involvement of the woman-detective Miss Sherlock, Wilbert was freed of charges and the true culprit was found: Robertson, Marton's companion who did the crime under the influence of his lover Yulya Garrington and her relative Charles. Miss Sherlock and her companion Atkins, by risking their lives repeatedly, getting into all sorts of dangers and disguising, break into Yulya Garrington's house and find the stolen papers. The third act takes place in a third-sort pub during a ball-mascarade with dance, songs and music. In conclusion, the culprit Robinson shoots himself, Yulya goes insane, and Miss Sherlock and Atkinson get a reward for solving the crime.
