Nice little mystery features Starrett as a reporter who is doing a piece on students who work their way through college. He meets Grey, a night club singer and student, one night and drives her back to campus. On the way, he accuses her of being in love with a star athlete whose job is to

ring the chimes in the school's bell tower. After dropping her off, Starrett hears a gunshot coming from the tower. He becomes a suspect in the crime when police captain MacDonald finds him at the scene of the crime. He is not arrested, however; but Grey, also a suspect, is. Although a suspect in

the murder, Starrett is placed on the story. After two more students are killed, he takes the bullets to Van Sloan, a respected professor and amateur sleuth. Van Sloan tells him that all three bullets came from the same gun. Story climaxes when Starrett figures out that the professor is

responsible for the murders, confronts Van Sloan with the evidence, and the professor tries to kill him. Luckily the police have been secretly trailing Starrett and rush in to save him. Grey is released, and romance blossoms for her and Starrett. The plot of this tidy suspense mystery is developed

neatly, with a believable solution to the murders. One curious development is that although a reporter, Starrett takes not one single note in the entire course of the picture, a technique reporters everywhere would probably find amazing. He later traded in his reporter's credentials and went on to

make countless serial cowboy pictures.
