Time Out says

A group of newsmen hunt for a sex murderer. Their motive is greed; the prize is control of a newspaper. 'Noble' Dana Andrews initially refuses to participate, but finally offers his fiancée (Forrest) as bait for the killer (Barrymore) who, naturally, is the film's most sympathetic character. Lang makes inspired use of glass-walled offices, where all is seen and nothing revealed, and traces explicit parallels between Andrews and the murderer. Lang's most underrated movie.
