Five members of the board of a company called Combined Holdings have all been recently murdered. It would appear that each one received a card with the words 'The Scales of Justice' printed on it before their deaths and the assassin would seem to a man posing as blind with a blowpipe concealed in his white stick. Gilbert Kirby, a friend of the Saint, is the latest board member to be threatened. He is due to be made Lord Mayor of London and escapes an assassination attempt whilst in the mayoral procession. The Saint examines photos of the pageant and realizes that the would-be killer was on the float submitted by Combined Holdings and has to be a member of the firm. He sets out to unmask him.
