When boozy, womanising homicide detective Ernest Dewalt is shot on duty, his police career comes to an abrupt halt, so he takes up a job teaching mystery writing at a Southern University. The wife of a fellow professor asks for his help when she is accused of her husband's murder. The revelation that the academic had been conducting an affair with a seductive waitress gives the wife a plausible motive, but Dewalt remains convinced of her innocence.
