Thriller. Big city newspaper reporter Jerry McKibben is invited to report closely on a special crime investigation committee set up by his childhood friend, the crusading and idealistic lawyer John Conroy. The aim is to bring down the mighty crime empire of Neil Eichenberger, whose crime syndicate reaches across the whole city. When Jerry discovers that Conroy's well-respected policeman father is not as honest as he seems, a chain of events begins in which there can be only one winner, and Eichenberger soon shows he will stop at nothing to maintain his $200m racket.
