Bob Wallace breaks off his engagement to Millie Crest after involving her in an embezzlement scheme. Millie hurriedly leaves town and gives a lift to Fern Driscoll, who tries to hijack the car, causing it to plunge down a canyon. Fern is killed and Millie assumes her identity and travels on to Los Angeles, where she is contacted by a shady insurance investigator, Carl Davis. Davis tries to recover incriminating letters from Fern/Millie, who knows nothing about them. That evening Millie protects herself by stabbing an intruder with an icepick. The intruder is Davis, who later contacts Millie and threatens to harm her if she doesn't produce the letters. Davis is representing Senator Baylor, up for re-election, who wanted his son separated from Fern Driscoll. Millie sends Perry Mason to represent her in this matter. Davis dies and Millie is charged with his murder.
