‘The Man Who Knew Too Much’ Plot Summary

The Man Who Knew Too Much begins with Bob and Jill Lawrence getting more than they bargained for on a holiday in Switzerland. When someone shoots their friend Louis Bernard, his dying words are a request to Jill to get information hidden in his room to the British Consulate. However, once they get that information, someone kidnaps their little daughter, Betty. You see, Louis was a Foreign Office spy and the information he had outlines the assassination of a foreign dignitary. Once back in London, Bob sets out to bring his daughter back home alive. What he learns not only leads him straight to the kidnappers themselves, but Jill to a lovely concert at the Albert Hall. She quickly finds herself with a gut-wrenching choice that pits the life of the foreign dignitary against the life of her own daughter.
