Nowadays, he is covering the racetrack beat. When Helen Searle (Amanda Donohoe), a society call-girl, looks him up and begins telling him a story of high-class corruption and wrongdoing, it attracts the attention of a pretty grim customer (Glen Murphy), who begins murdering people who are important to the story.
