SYNOPSIS

Roma Winnet, the author of Jealousy , loves and marries Bob Lawson, but worries that her own difficulties with that emotion will destroy their relationship. When Dave Blake enlists in the secret service, he entrusts Ethel Clarke, his girlfriend and Roma's best friend, to Bob's care, an arrangement that immediately causes Roma to fret.

After a fierce battle with the spies, Dave and Bob escape unharmed. Once misunderstandings are cleared up, the wrath of love is quelled and Roma reunites with ... +
