An attempt is made on Dushenko's life with a monkey's paw-print found at the scene. Newspaperman reporter Harry Martin is covering the story. Duskenko is moved secretly to a nursing home, while Locklin stumbles onto the hideout of the gang behind the killings. He is captured along with Julia Jackson, niece of Superintendent John Harrington. Locklin is tortured to reveal Dushenko's hiding place but escapes in time to avert Duskenko's murder at the hands of the gang's hired-killer---a midget who is aided by a monkey.
