Synopsis for The Clock Strikes: "The Burton Kidnapping"

Burton the millionaire is kidnapped and the police investigate. Captain Kane's wealthy friend Brian O'Brien wants to help and asks to look at the clues, but Kane just brushes him off. That night, The Clock breaks into the station house, where "first class, third grade detective" McDuff is examining the evidence with a magnifying glass. The Clock uses ventriloquism to trick McDuff into leaving the room, steals some of the evidence, and 20 minutes later he's back in his own hideout. He's recovered six cigarette butts, an empty matchbook, and a pair of broken spectacles, from which he deduces that the kidnapper had a long wait before Burton arrived, and that there was a scuffle. Microscopic examination yields no further results. He gets an idea, leaves his hideout, goes to a payphone, calls the Daily Mail, and places a classified advertisement for the next day's morning edition.

The next morning, the kidnappers see the ad, and fall for the Clock's ruse. They now believe that some other crook is trying to muscle in on their caper. Butch sends Squint to meet this person, at the spot designated in the ad, to bump off this chiseler and steal his money. Squint arrives half an hour early, to set an ambush, but the Clock has arrived even earlier, and now has the drop on Squint. Squint squeals. Clock ties him up and puts him in his own car, which the Clock then drives to Butch's place, on the 2nd floor of a crappy rooming house on the east side of town. Before going in, he calls McDuff, then he gets himself and Squint inside, and uses his trick walking-stick to knock out Butch, then ties both kidnappers to chairs. McDuff arrives outside, suspicious of several things at once, and the Clock meets him on the sidewalk, tells him where the kidnappers and the hostage are, and that he can have credit for the collar and the rescue, also he returns all the stolen evidence.

The next morning, McDuff is telling Capt. Kane a highly colorized version of how he solved the crime, when the Clock's calling card falls out of his pocket, tipping off Kane to what really went on.
