Asst. D.A. Gibson (The Corpse in the Corner Saloon) officiating in a case concerning the unaccountable, unstable Camerons- Gordon with his God complex, David- his half-brother and an entrenched alcoholic, Ellen- his stepsister- with a steel plated hole in her head. It is the anonymous letters addressed to Gordon which send Ellen to the D.A., and with Gordon's murder her anxiety is justified and increased as all evidence points to David. It is only with the killer's self-revelation that these two youngsters get back on their feet, and David wins her first bout with the bottle... Sensational stuff, tightly, smoothly coordinated.
