Synopsis

Fast-paced feature in which a law graduate's stuttering start to his career in the District Attorney's office suddenly hots up. P. Cadwallader (Dennis O'Keefe), a graduate of Harvard Law School, makes a mess of his first assignment and, as a punishment, is given the case of a corrupt city official, Paul Hyde (Peter Lorre), to look at. The case, at a dead end, is supposed to be a bore, however when the reappearance of the stolen money is followed by a number of apparently related murders, the eager Cadwallader is hot on the trail of the missing Hyde.
