It's up to police lieutenant Jim Stevens to pick the murderer out of several likely candidates like the cocaine addict Dolly White. And Stevens has a love-affair with Lou Ann Winton, who may or may not be mixed up in the murder.

In the opening scenes, fingerprints are being rolled onto a fingerprint card and the card then removed. That is wrong in that the prints were rolled properly but prints were left off. On the bottom of the card on the right, flats are taken of the right fingers and the flat of the thumb is taken. The same is done for the left four and the thumb. This card would have been rejected as being incomplete. Three cards are usually done. One for the city police records, one for the state, and one for the FBI records. See more
