On the dark and gritty streets, shady characters meet in a hideout. A recent bank robbery and murder has the gangster and his girlfrind at the mercy of a man named Creepy. The old man lays on heavy expenses to stay in his dive. It’s enough to make the gangster put an end to his mistreatment, and and seek another hideout. Think of it, criminals committing crimes against criminals.
The old man is found dead, and the cops begin to piece together the connection behind the hideout, and the gangster on the run. Casey and Ann get the details, which serves to enlighten the listener to a fuller picture of the gangland scene. It’s all Casey needs to hit the streets, and ask questions.
In the Blue note, Ann, and Casey talk with Ethylbert to se what he might know. A characteristic of the gangster, Davis, is his temper when he is overcharged for things, and his preference for neatly manicured nails. Both are keys to help Casey spring a trap.
Casey strikes on an idea to make his informants work for him, and expose the robbers and killers. Greed plays a big part in the solution. The whole thing isn’t without risk or danger, as Casey discovers when gunplay enters the picture.
