A man from a charity fund, sponsored by the Daily Sentenal, talks with Miss Casey about a list of poor families to help for Christmas. Certain ones who have been on the list for years have mysteriously hit it big, and no longer have a need for charity. Flags are raised, and Brit Reed takes a closer look into the matter. How could destitute families suddenly elevate themselves out of poverty?
Hey, leave them alone to enjoy their financial security. It’s probably just hush money to keep them from having a loved one hurt by organized crime. But no… It’s the principle of taking dirty money, instead of making an earnest living, or in letting Brit Reed get an ego boost in providing care for his destitute families.
But I’m beginning to rant, back to the story.
Is there a pattern to connect those who have made good in the past hyear? Brit spots the activity centering around a certain nightclub owner. Now he needs to deliver solid proof to the cops to see that any injustices are dealt with. To get it done, Brit relies on the unorthodox methods of the Green Hornet and his side kick Cato.
Sure enough, the flood of cash to the needy families is hush money, paid on account of the man in the family being in prison, and having knowledge of gang operations related to Spencer, the nightclub owner. When the Green Hornet begins doing his own extortion from the families, he hopes to bring down Spencer and all his dastardly gangland deeds.
With the grease removed, will the wheels begin to squeal to the cops? Of course, the Sentinal will kick in with honest charity funds to support the destitute families.
