No need to say how Agatha Christie's writs will be. The queen of crime novels, Agatha, stands proof to her title in this book. The plot is about a top-secret document that maintains good spirits between US and UK (in those days, UK was just one single country). If that document may fall into the wrong hands, it may cause enmity between the two aforementioned nations. The document was being carried to US by a person in the ship Lousitania, which gets torpedoed. The life-saving boats were insufficient and only women and children can escape. Sensing the danger, the message-carrier hands over the documents to a girl called Jane Finn. No one knew anything about Jane and the baddies were on search for her.

Meanwhile two ordinary people--a boy and a girl friends--give out a fake ad that they're detectives and may do anything for money. They're hired to fine Jane. They uncover that Mr. Brown is the villain who wants that document.

Did they find Jane? What is in the document? Who is Mr. Brown?
