And when Peter's wife, Iris, comes home from a trip to find Nancy dead in the bathroom, the assigned detective, Lt. Bruce, soon realizes this assumed suicide is more likely a murder. Everyone Ordway knew is suddenly suspect while a series of flashbacks reveal the plan she was weaving to climb the social ladder.

The ship's physician, Dr. Paul Manning, might be the only person on board who can save Ruth from a terrifying predicament.
