The man intent on killing Phryne's father escapes from the hospital on the same night that a prominent scientist is murdered. As Phryne and Jack race the clock to save Baron Fisher, Hugh and Dot make final wedding preparations.
Vengeance is the order of the day as the hospitalized killer from The Grand Hotel case escapes his police guard in obsessed, continued pursuit of Baron Henry Fisher. The escape coincides with the murder of prize-winning scientist Quentin Tode, felled by a difficult-to-identify poison.
