At the scene of a murder, Faraday finds evidence to indicate that his favorite target, Boston Blackie, was on the scene. Though Blackie doesn’t deny the connection that was uncovered, he’s far from concerned over the circumstantial evidence. Not letting the accusations get him down, Blackie takes Mary to a nightclub where a hypnotist is doing his act. Is the mentalistfor real?
What do the pieces of this puzzle mean? It’s about time for Blackie to start putting a few together. Joan is a cigarette girl, and friend of Mary, but why does she insist that she is the killer? Might she be covering up for someone else?
Blackie is impressed that Faraday is actually doing some investigating in the matter, but he also does some poking around of his own. Is it possible a drug was used to influence the confession out of Joan? Does Blackie have all the clues he needs to solve the case? Now it’s time to dig up the hard evidence that the cops need, and tie up the package to lay at Faraday’s feet. It’s not quite over, at least not without some danger, and Blackie facing down the business end of a pistol.
