"G" men: It's the early days of the F.B.I., federal agents working for the Department of Justice. Though they've got limited powedrs, they don't carry weapons and have to get local police approval for arrests. That doesn't stop fresh Law School grad Eddie Buchanan from joining up, and he encourages his former roommate James "Brick" Davis to do so as well. But Davis wants to be an honest lawyer, not a shyster, despite his ties to mobster boss McKay, and his intent on doing so, un Buchanan is gunned down trying to arrest careet criminal Danny Leggett. Davis soon joins the "G-Men" as they hunt down Leggett (soon to be Public Enemy Number One) and his cronies Collins and Durfee, who are engaged in a crime and murder spree from New York to the midwest.
