- Summaries (3)
Chan is on a gambling vacation in Monaco. He is called upon to solve two murders. One is a casino messenger on his way to Paris with a million dollars in bonds. The other is a two-bit Chicago gangster recently tending bar in a Monte Carlo hotel. Everyone is suspect and a third of the dialogue is in French.
While attending a Monte Carlo art exhibit in which son Lee has a painting on display, Charlie meets a Monacan police inspector who knows Charlie by reputation. The highly impressed officer is very excited to meet the world famous detective and insists on comping him at the local casino. At the Chemin de Fer table Charlie witnesses the animosity between two rival financiers, Victor Karnoff and Paul Savarin, who are engaged in a feud of long standing. After Lee has lost all the house money he has been advanced by the inspector, the Chans are stranded on the way to the Nice airport when their taxi breaks down. While walking along the road, they come across the murdered body of Karnoff's courier, who had been carrying valuable bearer bonds for his employer. Charlie and Lee return to Monte Carlo, where they help the inspector solve the crime. Among the many suspects are Savarin, Evelyn Gray, a beautiful blonde without visible means of support, and Al Rogers, a shady bartender who is blackmailing Mrs. Karnoff.
Although Charlie and Lee are in Monaco for an art exhibit, they become caught up in a feud between rival financiers which involves the Chans in a web of blackmail and murder.
