[ Story ]
In late 1940 the Japanese were anxious to conclude peace in China and to that end sent Colonel Hidaka to inaugurate negotiations. He was mysteriously assassinated, however, when his car was blown up.
The General Staff Headquarters in Japan, sends Lieutenant Shiina, a graduate of the famed Nakano School of Spies inaugurated by Colonel Kusanagi, to investigate the matter. Arriving in Shanghai, he disguises himself as a Chinese coolie and sets out to watch for developments, the only clue being a silver dollar found beside what was left of the victim. Through the investigation, he finds out that the secret order for peace negotiations were intercepted by a communist spy named Sung.
One thing leads to another and Shiina is on the track when the Japanese send a new peace envoy, General Kihara, whose plane unfortunately lands in Communist-held territory and Shiina and Lieutenant Sugimoto are sent to rescue him.
Disguised as coolies they finally reach the General and bring him back safely, though Sugimoto is killed. In Shanghai once more, Shiina continues his work and finally uncovers the great spy ring which had thwarted Japan's peace efforts.
