Reporter Walker Cameron finds himself in a mess when two unnamed sources, two people he actual knows but wants him to refuse to identify, tell him that the Governor of the state will soon be assassinated. Less than a story but certainly something the cops should know about, he gives them the information. They, of course, want to know the names of the sources. Or else. This then leads him on a legal mission that will put his own life in jeopardy. Doing the right thing, apparently, is not always doing the right thing.
