Meet Godfrey, who is a former police detective who is now a newspaper reporter who specializes in crime. He is the brilliant investigator similar to Sherlock Holmes. Lester, his partner is a lawyer who is the narrator of the books who lacks Godfrey's brilliance.
In this novel, set in the Bronx, Godfrey invites Lester to relax in the house he has rented in the country. Godfrey shows Lester a nightly event that takes place in the estate beside his house, this event being a star that falls from the sky as two men, dressed in robes, stand on the top of the house with their arms in the air. The estate is owned by a wealthy American named Vaughan, who has brought from Paris a pair of Hindoo mystics. The primary mystic is a Portugese named Sylva. Vaughan is found dead.

As the novel unfolds, Godfrey and Lester, with the help of Detective Simmonds of the NY police, investigate the murder while dealing with Vaughan's daughter, who seems to be the object of Sylva's affection.
The novel includes a Hindoo Thugee, who owns a cobra, and Miss Vaughan's lover, Swain, a wealthy young man who turns out to have lost his money.

Godfrey and Lester solve the case by means of a careful investigation the requires that they interpret the behavior and values of a religion and culture both are unfamiliar with.
