A thrilling story of lies and deceit, and how even the most unexpected thing can happen. Billy Newlands is facing financial ruin and possibly prison when his luck turns. He receives news that a friend of his has died, and his daughter, Beatrice Crittenden, is coming to San Francisco with a letter addressed to Newlands. Beatrice has inherited a substantial sum of money, which Newlands will gain access to by duping her into a fraudulent marriage. Their honeymoon is brought to an abrupt end by a railway accident. Newlands is thrown clear, and wanders away convinced that Beatrice is dead and haunted by pangs of conscience. Beatrice, far from being dead, manages to save the life of a mining engineer. Beatrice volunteers to accompany the barely conscious Steve Crawford back to his mine, permitting the belief that she is his wife. Things don't go well at the mine until a new man named Jim Gilson turns up who is able to handle the recalcitrant crew. Only Beatrice knows that Gilson is not his real name.
