Synopsis

Glen Spencer is framed by Sam Olivier and convicted for murder. For two years in prison he plans an escape to get revenge.

Notes

The story is unclear on who was murdered. Glen refers to Roy James. The person who dies appears to be Mr Holmes, but his moustache briefly disappears, and Sam Olivier also refers to Mr Holmes. The story appears to have been translated from a Spanish source.
