And does he kw the whereabouts of Felix Raybolt, an unscrupulous dealer in patents, who has t been seen since his home burned? Or did Raybolt die in the fire? When evidence mounts against Joe Swenson, who was swindled by Foxy Felix, our young detective makes the desperate effort to exonerate the inventor of the suspicion of arson because of his dear five-year-old daughter.
