A serial by Alfred Shaughnessy.
[Starring] Derek Bond and Ann Hanslip

The leader of a terrorist group in a British colony is sentenced to hang, and the Governor of the colony, General Harper, rejects an appeal to save the terrorist's life.
In retaliation, the terrorists kidnap the Governor's daughter in London, and announce that if their leader hangs, the Governor's daughter will hang at the same stroke of the hour in a place of execution of their choosing. The daughter's fiance, Paul Farrell, decides to ignore the police and to search for her on his own. His investigation leads him to a hut on an aerodrome where he is mistaken for a thief and fired upon.
