A wealthy man, Ralph Johnston, hires detective Stuart Bailey to investigate his wife's background. Baily discovers that the wife had been a dancer under her maiden name of Jane Breeger and had left her home town with actor Buster Buffin. Buffin tells that Jane changed her name to Janie Joy and enrolled in UCLA. He promised more information but is killed before Bailey can question him further.

With the help of a showgirl, Bailey learns that the wife had used stolen papers from a girlfriend to enter college after she stole $40,000 from the club where she worked. The detective eventually learns that the Johnston had killed his wife when he had himself discovered her past, in order to avoid a scandal, and that he had hired the detective in order to frame him for the killing
