**Warning: Some of the language or characterizations in this book are the product of the time when this book was written, and are no longer considered acceptable.**

Elsie Bellwood is staying at the Hotel Ponce de Leon when she is approached by a mysterious, handsome stranger with a thick Spanish accent who frightens her though claiming to offer his gentlemanly services. When one of her male friends she is travelling with becomes aware of the situation, a stand-off is inevitable even though dueling has long been illegal in the United States. What will happen to Elsie in this melodrama, and who will prove her greatest protector?

Other notable local locations visited include the Cathedral Basilica, the old slave market, the Spanish Quarter (Colonial Quarter), Matanzas River, Anastasia Island and the St. Augustine Lighthouse, Alcazar Hotel, Castillo de San Marcos (including the golf course), the seawall, and the Old City Gates.
