Brilliant, flamboyant criminal attorney Lowe, who has made his mark--and his fortune--successfully defending the wicked against their just deserts, finally loses a case. The one truly innocent man he has ever defended is executed for the murder of Brown, a policeman, after an important

witness has been executed. The experience is cathartic for Lowe, who proceeds to turn his talents to the pursuit of true justice. At the urging of inamorata Hobart, the governor, Gordon, appoints the reborn Lowe to the position of district attorney. Newly zealous in his pursuit of criminals, Lowe

prosecutes the big brain behind a mob of racketeers--Stephenson, his one-time client. Justice triumphs over art in this stereotyped story with unclever dialog.
