A murderer, dubbed the "Constant Reader" for sending notes to the police with exact locations and descriptions of victims, eludes Inspector Holcomb (Henry O'Neill). On a radio program called "The Fox," hosted by Wally Benton (Red Skelton), Holcomb hears Wally describe a letter that sounds similar to those from the Constant Reader.
