Being stuck with no way out, of course Eliot uses his situation to come up with his next Ace Hart story.
Ace gets framed for a crime he didn't commit - stealing "The Sultan's Slipper". But from behind bars, he can't absolve himself from his crime. Ace has to depend on Rosie O'Gravy, chief of Detectives, to help him out of his predicament. However, when Rosie's disguise is discovered, they are both trapped in the paws of Bugsy Vile and his gang.
