The film is set in Kansas City during the 1930's. Private investigator Mike Murphy's partner is viciously killed when he attempts to extort a gangster with his confidential accounting documents. Lieutenant Speer used to work with Murphy and they unite together again to take down the mob. They do not really get along, for Speer is reserved and Murphy is a chatter box.
