A witness with information that could clear Lillian is killed by a knife hurled from inside the courtroom. Shyane hides the knife in the ensuing confusion. He slips out of the jury room that night and, with the aid of reporter Judy Taylor (Marjorie Weaver), traces the knife to a professional blade-slinger, Count Edmond Telmachio (Alexander Lockwood). Shayne finds the Count murdered in a warehouse and a brooch discovered on his body now points the finger of suspicion at nightclub singer Rita Darling (Joan Valerie) and the owner of the club where she works, George Dolphin(Don Costello). Rita was the fiancée of Forsythe and Dolphin is in love with her. The trial begins the next day, with Shayne back in the jury box, after giving the information he picked up to defense counsel John Logan (Richard Derr).

Tim Hanley is an American agent, posing as a lawyer connected with the United States Embassy in London, and Reggie Oliver, a Scotland Yard detective, posing as a music critic, who has a hard time understanding American slang. Both are keeping their eye on Carla Nillson, a famous singer, whom they suspect of espionage. They all meet in London, then in Lisbon, and eventually in New York City, where Carla sings on the radio under the auspices and sponsorship of Siudney Grenner, a wealthy candy manufacturer, who is in reality the head of the sabotage gang. Miss Nillson may or may not know that some of the songs she sings over the radio are in code, and give instructions to the enemy operatives about airplane shipments to England. And even if she doesn't know, will she still be implicated and subject to being arrested by Tim, whom she has fallen in love with? And if she is arrested, will Tim be waiting for her when the Allies defeat the Nazis?

A typical mid-30s entry from the Maury M. Cohen Invincible arm of Chesterfield Pictures, shot in the usual static style of Frank R. Strayer who moved the camera maybe twice for a medium close-up, probably under orders not to from producer Cohen who knew moving the camera cost time and money. This one has good-girl Dorothy Brooks being summoned to the apartment of her department store boss, Mr. Dickman, who accuses her of stealing lingerie from the store, but if she will be nice and kiss him, he won't turn her in. She shoves him away and he tumbles (off-camera, of course) out of the second story window. Dorothy flees with the aid of her friend, Kitty Kennedy, and she soon encounters Donald Cabot, Jr. who, unknown to her, is the son of the department store owner. He, of course, also doesn't know she is an employee of his father's store wanted for assault and theft. No surprises from this point to the happy ending. Dickman, the cad, naturally turns out to be the lingerie thief.
