Hester Storm is a nearly reformed thief, but when she overhears the bishop sitting in the train with her discussing the £5000 he has collected for charity, her instinct wins out. In order not to be caught with the goods, however, she hides it in the golf bag of the bishop's young traveling companion, an act which requires her to chase the bag to Hiram Baxter's estate at Ippingford, where she poses as a domestic in hopes of securing her prize. But Ipping House is also home to various impecunious distant cousins of Baxter's wife, who are discomfited when a ghost scare drives away all of the servants, forcing them to reform their dependent lives. Hester seeks to reform as well, but can't manage to return the money with Detective Grimes of Scotland Yard on her trail. Charming.
