Pat Evans is a German expatriate who is loyal to her new adopted home, the United States. A shadowy German bund operating in the Long Island area tries to recruit as the sophisticated but lecherous Andrew Hendon tries to physically coerce her into joining. While she is flying in the private plane of Cortland Grand, a rich friend of Nick Carter's, she knocks Hendon unconscious in self defense, but leaves him alive in a rear compartment of the plane. When the steward discovers the body, he finds Herndon stabbed in the throat by a nail file. Before the trip is over, the co-pilot is also stabbed to death. Luckily for Pat, one of the passengers on Grand's plane is famed New York detective Nick Carter. Although he is off-duty, the resourceful sleuth along with Beeswax, his bizarre sidekick, and beautiful Southern Chris Cross, a female gumshoe, breaks up a secret cell of Nazi saboteurs and FIfth Columnists.

Why, anything you say. Do you mind if I remark the young lady is very attractive.
I'll say, she is like a magnet. She attracts steel, bombs, gunpowder, and sudden death.

As a rule, I enjoy the detective films made back in the 30s and 40s. But this film is punishing. The character played by Joyce Compton is especially annoying. How Walter Pigeon could be interested in her is beyond me.
The only plus was the chance to spot all the bit players who populated the film. If this was considered the best of the series, I have no desire to see the others.
I'm sure Tom Conway was delighted that his role was so short, and Edward Ashley couldn't muster any real enthusiasm for his part either.
My 2 was generous!
