Anne Fielding is delayed on the London Underground, making her late for a meeting with her friend, Victor James Colebrooke. There, she meets Jack Williams who is also delayed. The two take an immediate liking to each other. After emerging from the Underground, Jack helps her locate Victor.

Victor is gradually becoming insane. He is the grandson of a notorious hangman, and he finds himself unable to resist the urge to strangle women to death. Although he is in love with Anne, he does not know how much longer he can prevent himself from killing her. Inspector Conway investigates Victor's murders and pieces together all of the evidence he finds that Victor appears to be purposely leaving behind.
