During the voyage, a love affair grows between mike and Elsa, but he knows he must have money to take her away from the torturous marriage.Mike is approached by Grisby with an offer of $5,000 to sign a confessionthat Mike killed Grisby, who will then vanish so that his wife will be able to collect the insurance. Elsa warns Mike that the whole thing may be a plot of Bannister's.

Defended by Bannister, he is tried and found guilty. Mike escapes from the courtroom, determined to find the real murderer. Elsa hides him in a fun-house at an amusement park, but Mike has now begun to suspect that Elsa is the murderer. She has much to gain from Grisby's death.
