Laura Mansfield's father is killed, apparently by a telegraphic messenger. She spots Jackie Wales in a police lineup, but can't identify him positively. Later, she arranges to meet him, and is convinced he was the killer, but he was acting for someone else. She gets to know Jackie to find out who the boss is, taking a job in the Vogue Club, owned by a man named Armitage. Meanwhile, Alice, Armitage's greedy mistress, goes after Jackie and lures him into blackmailing the nightclub owner. Armitage discovers the betrayal, and kills the two, but Laura schemes to get closer so she can prove him guilty.
Gangster 'Stretch" Norton orders the killing of Arthur Mansfield, whose daughter, Lauren, sees the runaway killer. She identifies the man as Jackie Wales, but the police are only interested in finding the gang-leader. Laura embarks upon her own investigation and makes a friend of Jackie who gets her a job in Norton's nightclub. When Norton's girlfriend, Alice Wentworth, and Jackie try to blackmail him they are both murdered. Laura thinks she knows the identity of the killer, and begs Nortonm whom she has fallen in love with, for his help in convicting his henchman Armitage. Norton pretends to agree, since Armitage is a problem for him, and then frames Laura for shooting Armitage. Laura has a problem.
