Torchy Blane is investigating the political career of mayor Dr. Dolan, who has installed a corrupt leadership. She demands a new election, and after the opposition's candidate is murdered, she decides to run for mayor.
Investigative newspaper-reporter "Torchy" Blane uncovers evidence of graft, corruption and murder against an underworld boss who has control of a big city's politics. After a political opponent of the machine is murdered while running for Mayor of the city, "Torchy" decides to put her own name on the ballot.
"Star' reporter Torchy Blane is on a mission to expose local crime boss 'Doc' Dolan and his corrupt puppet mayor. Working with a petty thief, she bugs the mayor's office and discovers the existence of Dolan's "little red book" of payoffs and bribes. This information helps her to break into Dolan's house and find the book. Unfortunately Dolan's syndicate is able to pull advertising from "The Star," and coerce them into not printing the story. A frustrated Torchy is turned down by every other paper in town with the exception of principled editor Hubert Ward. The resultant publicity forces a recall election with Ward standing against the corrupt administration. However, after Dolan murders him, the only one willing to run in his place is Torchy.
Torchy conducts a one woman campaign against a corrupt mayor and crime boss, and when the reform candidate is murdered, she takes up the banner.
