Accomplice was the pilot for a proposed PRC series based on Frank Gruber's short-tempered detective hero Simon Lash. Richard Arlen plays Lash as written -- brusque, nasty, and antisocial. The plot gets under way when socialite Joyce Bonniwell (Veda Ann Borg) hires Lash to locate her missing husband Jim (Edward Earle). The fact that Joyce is Lash's former sweetheart heightens the detective's interest in the case, which intensifies when several murders become part of the equation.
