Out of the Depths

Synopsis

Nick Chambers is convicted of throwing Carl Hummel into the concrete foundations of a new bridge. Successful Daily Globe gossip columnist Jean Farrel goes to the prison to write a human interest story on him, convinced that he doesn't look like a killer. She discovers his construction site was experiencing strange accidents and Hummel seems to be involved, trying to get Chambers to lose the construction contract. Following Chamber's arrest, the mysterious Atlas Engineering Company takes over the contract. And the head of that company turns out to be Chamber's defence attorney.

Notes

The original story was nine pages. Page 3 of the original story has been removed from this reprint, with a caption from the middle of the page used as introductory narration on the next page. On the missing page, Jean talks to Pop who shares her feeling that Chambers might be innocent and secures access to speak to him.
