The fire brigade quickly determines a case of arson and Detective Harry Mason is placed in charge of the investigation. Was the fire started to simply drive the family out of business? Or were darker, more sinister motives at work. After three months on the case, Detective Mason has made little progress. The local newspapers start questioning police competence and clamor for an immediate arrest. Out of desperation, the pugnacious Inspector Bowker is finally assigned to the case. He and his aide Jack Knight prowl the town, asking questions and feeling out the local riffraff. Just when they begin to make headway, the case becomes nastier: Bowker himself begins to receive anonymous threats. All of which makes him more determined than ever to solve the crime.
