Lord Randall Hale possesses a sacred amulet that once adorned the royal arm of the boy-pharaoh Tutankhamen. Back in Egypt, the zealous and ruthless priests of the Temple of Amenhotep II want it back and priests Abdul, Salam and Fouji came to England to get it. Meanwhile, an international gang of crooks, led by Giles Wade, aka The Panther, also want to take the royal-jewel from Lord Hale of Deep-Dene Manor, and many varied types began to frequent the area around and about Deep-Dene Manor, including a ghost. Hale's niece from Canada, Diana Brooks, also pops in, as does his worthless cad of a nephew, Chester Dunn. So does Chief Inspector Jack Lloyd of the C.I.D. The game is on. Written by

Did You Know?
There have been some incorrect claims this serial was initially released in the UK, before it was in the US. It was made in the UK by Universal and Mutual Pictures Ltd. in late 1931. The serial was first released as "Detective Lloyd" in the US (January 4, 1932), then in the UK with the title "Lloyd of the C.I.D." (April 18, 1932). It was never trade shown in the UK until February 16, 1932, then reviewed in Kinematograph Weekly in the February 18, 1932 issue, before being released on April 18, 1932. See Kinematograph Year Book Vol. 20 (1933) pages 61, 82, and 86. A search through both USA and UK newspapers finds theater advertisements for showings to the public confirming the initial release in the US in January, followed by the UK release under the alternate title in April.
