Marysville, California in 1948 has most anything you want: booze, dames, gambling. But as private eye Gene Harlow and his new pal, Police Lieutenant Pinkton Finkelstein soon learn there is a lot more to the story such as: a serial killer on the loose, a lady who is sure that her husband is about to kill her and even a suspected soviet spy. They are all on a collision course and in the end who will live and who will die?
