And Morgan has disappeared. Trying to find Morgan, Patsy stumbles across the body of John Clark, Morgan's ex-boss, not to mention now late boss.

Patsy Brent (Adrian), and Eddie Jones (Jenks) are co-owners of a bail bond business. Patsy wants to stick to the small stuff but Eddie believes they should think big and go after the bigger bond crimes. When he posts a $25,000 bail for an accused embezzler, Steve Morgan (Fowley), Patsy is livid. She insists they find Morgan, turn him over to the police and get their bond back. She accidentally meets Morgan but doesn't realize it's him. Patsy and Eddie go to the investment company Morgan supposedly embezzled from and while there, the company's president is found dead. Patsy tracks down Morgan and they then together search a hunting lodge where Morgan thinks one of the investment company board members has hidden the stolen bonds. The board members have been tricked into coming to the lodge and Morgan sets a trap to catch the thief and killer. It's all rather silly but Iris Adrian, Frank Jenks and Douglas Fowley make it a fun time killer on a rainy afternoon. All together, those three must have been in hundreds of movies. Typically, Adrian and Jenks make with the wisecracks. Fowley plays a good guy in this movie, as often as not he generally played a bad guy.
