Charlie Bekker–also known as Bob Smith, J. Brown and Will Jones–one morning finds himself in a very sticky situation: he wakes up on the floor of an unfamiliar room, under circumstances he couldn’t recall, with a girl he has known only in passing. And the girl is dead. But by some good fortune he happens to bump into John J. Malone, Chicago’s best criminal defense lawyer, who agrees to help him get out of the mess.
