A little band of convicts have just been released, and are now getting back together to find their hidden loot. When a problem develops, the female gang member goes to Blackie to ask for help to find her missing boyfriend. He disappeared from the top of a high rise building with the bag of stolen bonds, and his body was not to be found. At least not yet.
Blackie has a simple answer as to how he managed it. Farraday shows up on the scene with a sidewise remark about giving Blackie the bird. Oh my! And with news of a body that was found in a ditch.
The scene changes to the other gang members, who are still looking for the loot, and not falling for the disappearing trick either. They have found and killed the trickster, and left his body in a ditch. They snoop around, and seem to have found the stash of cash. The gang members turn on each other to keep from making the split of the loot so small. Now the gang is down to one remaining bad guy and his girlfriend.
Back to Blackie, he works with the girlfriend and the clue that was left to her. Along with Farraday, they all go to the spot, and find a hiding place that’s empty of cash, but filled with a body of one of the gangsters.
Now it’s up to Farraday to hunt down the gang. As the cops do their thing in watching the city, Blackie has his own plan to smoke out the bad guys. As the cops get close, the last remaining gangster, and his girlfriend make a fast get away. What they need is public awareness, and Blackie calls the local newspaper to get the story out.
Because the loot is in the form of bonds, and are registered in the first girls name, all Blackie plans to do is use her for bait. With an alert guard around her, this ought to be an easy way to catch the bad guy. Right? Well, not without the suspenseful fight scene, and the girl being exposed to certain danger from the desperate mobster.
