Robert Stone arrives in England on a search for his brother Jim, who has vanished without trace following a fancy dress party at the mansion of Jonathon Lanceford, the overprotective guardian of the beautiful young Dominie. Stone feigns his way into the house in order to question the girl, but once inside finds a strange atmosphere accentuated by the owner's obsession with Edgar Allen Poe. Dominie seems oddly evasive about Jim Stone, and insists that he left her. Lanceford for his part appears friendly and accommodating, but is obviously hiding something. When Dominie confesses to Robert that she is falling in love she begs him to leave the village, but the American refuses to depart until he has determined the truth. Then, unexpectedly, he receives an invitation to attend a fancy dress party up at the house...
