Breezy little B with Moto investigating a diamond smuggling ring in Puerto Rico.

Based on John W. Vandercook's novel Murder in Trinidad, which was filmed under that title in 1934. This film was intended to be a Charlie Chan entry, but after Warner Oland's death it was quickly re-written as a Moto film. The same novel was filmed again as The Caribbean Mystery in 1945.
