The very exciting story of a beach where the tide goes out, and murder comes in.
Maxie is forced to take a swim with his friend Bill. They are warned off by a gent named Fuzzy Atkins before they encounter a dame on the beach.
On their excursion, they find the body of a dead woman. They then begin to investigate her murder. They discover the woman’s husband, and a motive for him to kill her. When the nosy Bill gets to close to the truth, he gets a thump on the head, and left to be drowned when the tide comes in. Maxie and Fuzzy manage to rescue Bill, who then does some macho posturing with Nick, trying to get him to show some sign of being guilty.
Bill sets up a trap, but does he have the right man?
