A nightclub owner named Dutch is having problems with a protection racket. Dutch Snyder’s lawyer seems nervous as he prepares to leave town. Has he double crossed Dutch?
Gangsters are unhappy, and somebody just might be getting murdered soon. The lawyers wife, Peggy Hall, approaches Mr Malone to see if he’ll help her get a divorce, but when the cops barge in, they bring news that she won’t need it afterall. Now it’s up to the amazing Mr Malone to defend her from a murder charge.
Fortunately Peggy knows enough about her husbands business to point Malone on the track of the gangsters he was involved with. Here comes the part where the wisecracking, cliche spouting Mr Malone comes head to head with danger, and the cool, calculated mobsters.
How will Malone handle the criminals? How will he pinpoint which of the shady characters killed Arthur Hall? It won’t be without taking some hard knocks of his own.
