Allowing herself to be coaxed into his apartment, she resists his advances, and in a violent struggle, stabs him with a knife. But in her haste to leave the scene of the crime passionelle, she drops a glove. And this vital clue to her identity falls into the hands of a blackmailer who viciously starts turning the screw.
