Norman Kane, a shady businessman accused of swindling investors, collapses on a seaside jetty just prior to taking a swim in the cold ocean. Although his attending physician pronounces him dead of an apparent heart attack, a vacationing Colonel March discovers a sharpened needle near the body and connects it to an air rifle which Kane's secretary was using on the beach. Unfortunately by the time the police arrives, the body has disappeared, apparently taken out to sea by the advancing tide. Written by
