Sinopse

When Bengal lancers Major Iain Hadleigh first encounters beautiful young Brucena Nairn it is on a moving train as he forces her back into the carriage to protect her from the rioting on the platform.

First the unwanted attentions of the somewhat sinister Lord Rawthorne and, worse still, the devotees of Thuggee – highway murderers who strangled their victims from behind with a yellow silk scarf –It is only when, rescuing her in the darkness from the clutches of would-be murderers, Iain’s lips fall on hers that Brucena realises that she’s been in love with him all along!
