Arnold Ramsey has two grown children, Dorothy and Ernest, who hate Ramsey's second wife Eleanor who has money of her own, but refuses to spend it on supporting their lavish lifestyles.

Eleanor meets with private detective Mike Shayne to hire him to investigate threatening letters she has been receiving. In flashback the viewer sees the details of her home situation.

As Shayne is leaving this meeting, Arnold Ramsey wants a word with him. Insultingly implying that Shayne is on the shady side, Ramsey asks if Shayne will find someone to stage a phony jewelry burglary. He has hatched an insurance fraud scheme in which the actor would break in and find $1000 in an empty jewelry case in his wife's bedroom. Shayne cautiously tells Ramsey he will think it over. At the office Shayne vents his frustration to his secretary Phyllis, but does not see that his old friend, reformed ex-convict, and down on his luck, Joe Darnell and his wife are present in the office and overhear.

Darnell's wife Dora is pregnant, Joe needs $1000, and he anxiously volunteers to play the burglar. Shayne instead offers good advice to stay on the up-and-up, handing him a $50 gift check. However, later that night, Darnell takes it upon himself to go to the Ramsey home, claiming Shayne hired him, and he is accepted by Ramsey. Having set the stage, Ramsey strangles his wife as she sleeps. When Darnell breaks in and arrives in the bedroom, he discovers this and tries to revive her, which provides Ramsey the excuse to shoot and kill him, claiming he caught Darnell in the act of murder. The police believe this lie and close the case.

But Carl Meldrum, an ex-con gigolo dating Dorothy, just happened to be present and witness the actual murder. As a con man, he begins blackmailing Ramsey. Now Ramsey has to kill Meldrum, for which he tries to frame Eleanor's brother Buell Renslow, who was also at odds with her over money. From the beginning Shayne has suspected Ramsey—his work was assembling the proof—and at the end he is able to conclusively show the police who the actual innocent and guilty parties are.
