Those bookies! The only time they look at their watches is post time!

***SPOILERS*** A bookie war is going on in San Francisco with big time bookmaker Hoyt Llewellyn, Richard Anderson, trying to take over all the action. It's bookie Roy Chaffe, Sandy Kenyon, who's become a thorn in Liewellyn's side by agreeing to testify against him and put him out of business. That's why Llewellyn hired former lumberjack and now full time hit-man Art Styles, Steve Forest, to knock the guy off before he opens his mouth to the D.A's office. Staking out Chaffe's address Styles notice that the building next door or across the street from him is the perfect place for him to set up a hit in taking him out. And the person who lives in that apartment school teacher Mary Rae Dortmunder, Shirley White, is the perfect person for him to use and manipulate in his plan to gun Chaffe down.

It's during his planned attempt to ice Chaffe that Style learns that the person who hired him to do the job Hoyt Llewellyn was himself hit or murdered by his faithful assistant Abbie Groat, Michael Strong, making the hit on Chaffe totally unnecessary. Since he wasn't going to get paid for it anyway. Still the big jerk planned to go through with his hit on Chaffe just for the fun of it even if he didn't get a red cent for doing it. This made it easy for the police to track him down in that by then the cat was out of the bag where he was, at Mary Rea place, and what he was planning to do.

***SPOILERS*** Totally losing his sense of reality and desperately trying to knock off Chaffe with a hand gun no less from as far as something like 150 feet away Styles failed miserably as well as having Mary Rea, who seemed to have fallen in love with him, not join Styles in his exploits. The sad end to this very bizarre story has the by now totally crazed Styles lose it and try to check out of town at the San Francisco Airport, where the entire SFPD is withing for him, and ending up dead in the lost & found baggage department.
