Synopsis for The Clock: "License of a Murderer"

Late one evening, Brian O'Brien is the only witness as a recklessly-driven car swerves thru a downtown intersection, and a body is thrown out of it. O'Brien memorizes the license plate number, then checks the victim. It's the District Attorney, he's dead, and there's a crude warning note. Brian reports all this to Captain Kane, but Kane doesn't know much, only that the D.A. was working on a secret investigation. O'Brien walks home, cooking up a plan along the way, then has some instructions for Butch when he arrives at his apartment. From the license plate number, he's already figured out that the murderers are "Gong Gong" Klanes and his pal "Runt" Malay. Clock tells Butch to stay out in the hallway while he barges into Gong Gong's apartment. He intimidates Klanes into ratting on his boss (Magoni, at 198 Shore Drive) then pummels him unconscious anyway, while Butch intercepts and knocks out the fleeing Runt. Magoni is just a few buildings away, so they run there across the rooftops, making some amazing leaps along the way. They get into Magoni's building and break into his apartment, fighting at least three thugs counting Magoni, and are doing well until the Clock gets head-konked unconscious with a blackjack. They both get tied up and locked in a room where Butch finds a rat-trap, which she quietly picks up and slides into the Clock's jacket pocket. Then a gunman orders them out, for a last word with Magoni. But of course before Magoni can put his big knife to use he has his henchman search the Clock, and when the trap snaps on his hand, he flinches so hard that his gun is flung in Butch's direction; she catches it, then catches on that she's holding a loaded gat for probably the first time in her life, and she shakes so hard that it almost goes off while the bad guys obediently untie the Clock. Once he's untied, the Clock decks both remaining upright thugs, then has some questions about this trap being in his pocket...
