Jeff is hired by Paul Chandler to look into the background of his sister Laura Chandler's fiancé, boxer Chad Morrow, who Paul believes is solely after her trust money which Paul controls until Laura gets married. Besides boxing, Chad owns and operates a bar, the boxing solely to supplement his income for the future. Despite Chad refusing to speak to Jeff, Jeff initially doesn't seem to see anything unforeseen about Chad, that is until after his latest bout with Jack Delaney, the two who bring their fisticuffs outside the ring in their seeming dislike for each other. Jack's body is later found in his dressing room, he beaten to death, Chad the prime suspect. In asking questions, Jeff discovers that others don't want him to discover the truth behind Delaney's death, those questions about possible match fixing by Delaney and his team. If those match fixing rumors are true, Jeff has to find out the angle as Chad was heavily favored to win the bout despite it going the distance. Written by Huggo

Effective story, but not more.
17 December 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Jeff is needed in a case where a young man is accused of manslaughter, and whose the sister asks for our gumshoe to help her brother to get out of jam. This story takes place in the prizefighting business. And when we speak of boxing, we mean set-ups, fixes, rotten managers. It's not a comedy, but more a drama mixed with a good noir atmosphere where you won't find many surprises, I warn you. No guest stars either, but I recognized Gene Roth as a bar tender. In this tale, Stu Bailey shines with his absence. It seems our lead from now play one at a time, each one in his turn.

Usual stuff that I will forget rapidly.
