Thief, kleptomaniac... or innocent victim of a malevolent plot to implicate her?
That's Shirley Dale. First there had been the strange appearance of someone else's pocketbook on her person as she was getting on a crowded bus one evening. The next night when she was dining with the attractive Anthony Leigh, the flashy little purse of another woman mysteriously turned up in Shirley's own black hand-bag.
When she finds her employer's diamond brooch in the hem of her coat, Shirley flees in panic to Anthony for the help she so desperately needs. Anthony's devoted efforts to aid her uncover a sinister, fast-growing plan. Now Anthony and Shirley must clear her name and unmask her tormentor before her very life is in jeopardy.
