Sidney proceeds with his plan to get Count Massino of the Russian admiralty to approve a contract with the German ship factory he's representing over that of a British firm represented by rival Basil Zakharov. Not only will Sidney make a small fortune from the deal, but he will also double-cross his German employers by selling the blueprints to the English secret service for use against Germany in the impending World War. Sidney is able to bribe Massino by seducing his wife and offering to marry her after she divorces the count. Reilly plans to use the huge divorce settlement he has arranged with Massino to disguise the bribe he is paying him for the contract award. Basil tries to upset the plan by sending Margaret to St. Petersburg to embarrass Sideney ad Massimo. Written by
