Released from Pentonville Prison on the same day as a man is hanged, Shorty Mathews visits an old girlfriend only to find her strangled. He panics, sure the police will blame him, and goes on the run on the Great North Road. Back in London the real killer is prowling the streets. The hangman hovers. Someone needs to pay.
