Philip Romilly is an impoverished young art teacher in England, struggling to make ends meet and get his plays published. His cousin Douglas has everything that Philip lacks - wealth, education, connections, a life of ease, and even Philip's fiancée. The two men meet under a bridge, by a canal, and only Philip comes out. Philip then assumes Douglas's identity, and travels to America on Douglas's ticket, with his money and possessions. He is hoping for a fresh start there, and things begin quite promisingly. On the ship to America, he meets famous actress Elizabeth Dulstan. They strike up a romance, and through her, he gets the chance to see his play produced. But just when things are looking up for him, the shadow of his past life looms large. Can he escape? Gripping thriller from the classic age of mystery fiction.
