Private detective Eddie's (Damian O'Flynn) dad (Robert Homans) is shot dead by a gang of crooks, and Eddie has only two days to solve the crime before being drafted to serve in the war. Eddie is quick enough to link the murder to another crime, two trucks full of tires stolen from Underwood's (Neil Hamilton) transportation company, and soon he thinks he has also figured out who the mastermind behind the two crimes is, nightclub owner Marty Clark (Jack La Rue), and he shares his information with his cop friend Bill Decker (Dick Purcell), who tells Eddie to watch Marty in his club - but nothing more.

At the club though, the call-in jukebox girl Linda (Helen Parrish) suddenly announces an air raid warning, all the lights are switched off ... and Marty is shot dead. And Bill Decker arrives at the scene soon enough to arrest Eddie for the murder. Eddie, who is innocent, makes a daring escape, hooks up with jukebox girl Linda, the only one who can prove his innocence if only she can identify the woice who called in the air raid warning, and tries to investigate on his own ... but stumbles over corpses everywhere he goes, including Underwood, whose tires were stolen by Marty in the first place, and a blonde (Esther Muir) who claims she can identify the murderer.

Ultimately, he figures the only way to solve the whole case is to break into Marty's warehouse, where he meets Bill Decker, and he seems to be able to convince him of his innocence - thing is by that time, Linda has identified Decker as the man behind the phony air raid warning and thus the baddie of the whole piece, and ultimtately the two men slug it out until the police arrives to see to it that justice is served.

And of course, Eddie gets the girl.

 

Routine B-crime thriller with a pretty convoluted script that doesn't always make perfect sense, plus some aspects of the film are just not properly explained, but at a mere 55 minutes, the film is just short enough to not outstay its welcome and be at least entertaining if not terribly intelligent or original.
