"Hotshot crime magazine editor George Stroud ... inadvertently becomes the subject of a murder investigation after spending an evening with his boss'[s] mistress. She ends up dead and he is being framed by the actual killer. Meanwhile, at the publishing office, Stroud's competent staff scurries for clues while he finds himself in a race against the clock. It seems the prime suspect they are seeking matches an all-too-familiar description-- his own!"--Container
