Storyline

Sidney Rosenblum, a Russian born Jew, is recruited by the British espionage service and on his first assignment comes up with intelligence on the Russian oil fields but also sensitive information on their heretofore unknown Persian installations. He is detained in a provincial town by a zealous police inspector but sees a chance to escape. Rosenblum fakes a romantic liaison with the beautiful wife of an aged cleric caught in a dysfunctional marriage. Rosenblum's superiors are distressed with his less than gallant tactics and Margaret Thomas, the young wife in question feels humiliated at having been used. However, Rosenblum has a score to settle. An operative of Zaharov, an influential arms dealer working for the Turks among others, murders Rosenblum's London girlfriend in his zeal to obtain the invaluable documents from her.
