Richard Denning is Insurance Investigator Tom Davison in this Republic second feature. Davison has been assigned to look into a huge double-indemnity claim. Nancy Sullivan (Audrey Long), the victim's daughter, thinks that her father's death was no accident. As it turns out, Nancy is right on the money, but it takes Davison five reels to get to the truth. Veteran moviegoers will have no trouble unraveling the mystery before Davison does, if only because of the typecasting of such supporting players as Reed Hadley, John Eldredge, Hillary Brooke, Jonathan Hale and Roy Barcroft. Ironically, Hadley would later star as upright Lt. Braddock on TV's Racket Squad.
