Nancy Darke is intrigued when a mysterious veiled lady arrives in the gold rush settlement of Bishopstown. However, she’s annoyed when all the men, even the two she calls friends, seem unduly attracted to the veiled lady.
Nancy, confident in being the youngest and most attractive businesswoman in town, has promised the man who loved her to keep an eye on young Zack, son of a gold miner. When this gold miner turns up dead, with his partner strongly suspected of his murder, Nancy gets involved. She is attacked and the partner is killed.
The veiled lady is far too feminine and helpless to have any part in this. That Nancy would even consider it is simply jealousy. Or is it?
