Lamonte Cranston and Margot Lane help Joey and his poor family every year. Joey aspires to be a detective, and observes Lamonte in action on a case. When things don’t add up Lamonte realizes the wild goose chase is all Joey’s doing, just as a game. Things take a turn on a real case though when a man is found beaten and robbed. Is Joey hiding something?
The Shadow takes charge to turn an embarrassing situation around for the desperate family. Commiting a crime to right a wrong isn’t good, but there might be a way out to make amends for the McNulty’s. If only the stingy Mr Murphey will show his kinder and gentler side.
The Shadow plays a part to ensure both parties get a fair deal to enjoy the Christmas season.
