Based on a popular radio program, O'Keefe plays a novice DA fresh out of law school. When he botches up the case, O'Keefe is assigned to tracking down a former politician, Lorre, who had vanished four years earlier with a large payoff. He is assisted by newspaper reporter Rice, who traces

the money to a showgirl. Aware of the threat to his safety, Lorre contacts Watson for assistance, but is double-crossed by Watson, who fears for his own reputation. Except for Lorre's brief appearance, this picture has little going for it; the direction is ill-paced, and the script bumbling. Two

sequels followed, THE CARTER CASE (1941) and SECRETS OF THE UNDERGROUND (1943).
