Templar is grouse hunting in the scottish moors. He soon hears of a laboratory which is located in this desolate region. When he walks home through the moors he has an encounter with a man with protective clothing who uses an unknown ray weapon. Back at his quarter he is introduced by his host Ivor North to Professor Oakridge and security man Jock Ingram who both work at the research facility.
Now first one of North's men gets killed in a strange fashion, then Oakridge is found murdered in the laboratory. With his own blood he was still able to write three letters: COP. Is Ingram really the murderer?
