A topnotch espionage yarn based on Peter Cheyney’s novel, Sinister Errand, the script has Tyrone Power playing a diplomatic courier who is used by the Counter Intelligence Division to uncover the whereabouts of a missing Soviet timetable for invasion of Yugoslavia.

Power, the State Department’s top postman, is sent to Salzburg to pick up vital secret papers from James Millican. At the arranged meeting place in a railway station, Millican refuses contact and is later killed. Aware the Soviets did not get the papers, Power is assigned to trace Hildegarde Neff, a Soviet agent in belief she will have some clue to the mystery. Power is hampered in his work by Patricia Neal, seemingly a slightly nutty American tourist.
