Storyline

When gang leader Joe Colson (Noel Madison) is released from prison, the Consolidated Life Insurance Company fears that he will be murdered before his policy expires in ninety days, and assigns private detective Mike Henderson (Jack Holt) to protect him. Henderson follows him aboard a plane bound for the coast and, in mid-air, the plane is taken over by three gangsters who land it near a secluded hunting lodge. Frankie Toller (Stanley Fields), racketeer, then takes over and tells the passenger they will be held prisoners until Colson reveals where his money has been hidden.
