James Tyrone, sports writer for a Sunday newspaper, hears the drunken confession of fellow writer Burt Chekov: Chekov has apparently been writing his column according to the dictates of a blackmailer. Burt dies an "accidental" death shortly afterwards. Tyrone quickly determines that Chekov's column was being used as part of a betting swindle. As he leads his paper's effort to stop the swindlers, the married Tyrone must also wrestle with his own conscience as he pursues an affair.
