Corrupt cop Barney Nolan (Edmond O'Brien) is hard up for cash, so he shoots a bookie, relieves him of $25,000 and makes it look like an accident. Unbeknownst to Nolan, however, the entire episode is witnessed by a deaf-mute from across the street. While Nolan struggles to keep the crime a secret from his girlfriend, Patty Winters (Marla English), a series of loose ends pop up, and Nolan soon learns that, although committing a crime is easy, getting away with it is murder.
