The Man in the Brown Suit

Anne Beddingfeld comes to London looking for adventure.  But she gets more than she bargains for when she sees a man fall onto the tracks of the Underground where he is electrocuted.  A man in a brown suit hovers over the body momentarily and then disappears.  Anne becomes obsessed with finding out the identity of the man in the brown suit.  A piece of paper with numbers and two words on it falls out of the dead man's pocket -- the only clue to his identity.  Later Anne realizes that the man who checked the victims moments after he died was the "doctor".  In the meantime, Anne deciphers the words on the paper and heads to South Africa to investigate.

On the ship across the Atlantic, someone knocks on Anne's door, injured and bleeding.  Later, someone makes an attempt on Anne's life.  She eventually realizes that the man in the brown suit is not the murderer.  Her suspicions now rest on the head of a gang, named "Colonel", who is on board the ship.  While he is definitely a criminal he is not the murderer.  In the meantime, the trail Anne is following her leads her to South Africa and a stash of diamonds.  Sir Eustace Pedler, an MP, someone who was in possession of the diamonds, ends up being the one who committed the crime.
