As Farraday is in the middle of interrogating a suspect, Boston Blackie enters, and takes the man away. What is he, nuts? No, just certain that Farraday has the wrong man. Elsewhere, a couple of thugs trail Blackie in a car as Mary drives. The goose chase leads to a bowling alley, and now it’s time for Blackie to interview the man, by roughing him up.
Before anything important can be learned though, the two thugs rush in and steal the man away from Blackie, and he seems to be on the kind of ride that he won’t be coming back from. With no criminal in his possession, and no info, Farraday is handy to pick up Blackie and haul him in. Now what?
Blackie cools his jets in jail, is he going to just sit there and let Farraday catch the killers on his own?
Blackie can clearly break out if he wanted to. Mary visits Blackie with the latest news on the streets from Farraday, and together they make a plan to haul in the two thugs, and disrupt the plans of the gang.
There’s a situation where two gangs may be merging, and one where a mobster’s gal is doing all she can to spend all his money, forcing him to increase gang activity. Blackie is able to play on her jealousy, and just might be the thing to drive the gang apart.
Mary plays the part of the other woman, and drives the jealous girlfriend crazy. All Farraday needs to do now is just follow the mobster’s gal, right? Simple, right? Farraday is just oblivious enough so the gang situation comes to a boil. When Mary pushes the love triangle scene a little too far, she finds herself in a little danger.
Fortunately, Blackie manages to hang just the right kind of carrot in front of Farraday’s nose to spur him into action to solve the case, and rescue Mary before it gets too hot.
