Hector Warmington, a prosperous jeweller, is substituting faked jewellery for the genuine articles sent to him by his clients. This faked jewellery is made by William Haydon, who is wanted for murder. Warmington has evidence to clear Haydon but prefers to keep him under his thumb and his scam going.
