A crooked newspaper reporter attempts to save a socialite's life. Sam Lynch is not a crook, but most of his friends are. A journalist by trade, he has the inside scoop on every crime in New York City, but can’t write a word of it for fear of his sources turning violent. This makes it impossible for him to hold a job, despite being one of the city’s finest reporters. But when he meets Kay Salisbury, heiress to the Salisbury cookie fortune and fiancee of one of the wealthiest bachelors in the city, Lynch stumbles on a story that's too juicy to keep to himself. He finds her slumming in an underworld party, where her sweetness charms the hardened reporter. Soon after, he overhears two of his thuggish contacts planning to kidnap the young girl. To save Kay Salisbury will mean walking a tightrope between good and evil. One slip, and both will die.
