The place: exotic and dangerous Port Said. The time: the eve of World War II. Agents of an unnamed country, hoping to damage relations between France and Britain, are about to blow up the French fleet as it enters the Suez Canal. It will mean certain disaster for the free world, precariously poised over an abyss. The nefarious villains, including a deceptively cultured gentleman and a deceptively charming ventriloquist who has a peculiar friendship with his dummy, start things off by murdering the feared Japanese detective, Mr. Moto. But wait-- Mr. Moto, master of deceit, had another man stand in for him, and isn't dead after all! Posed as a mild-mannered art curator, Moto patiently and quietly engages in detection, employs unusual disguises, and awaits the chance to jump into action with his famous and dreaded jujitsu.
