F.B.I. agent George A. Briggs asks Bill Dietrich, a German-American engineer, to work as a double agent in Elda Gebhardt's organization. Elda lives in a mansion situated in 92nd street where the German spies in the U.S. bring their informations to, and from where these informations are sent to Germany. Dietrich, after having been trained in a German spy school in Hamburg, Germany, is sent back to NYC with the mission to send by radio to Germany the stolen informations brought by the spies. These pieces of informations are of course slightly modified by the F.B.I. before Dietrich sends them. Now, Dietrich is asked by agent Briggs to discover who is Mr. Christopher, a top Nazi spy, no one among Elsa's organisation seems to have had the opportunity to see or meet.
