Time Out says

This gripping, rarely screened drama finds an undercover accountant (O'Keefe) peering through Chicago's “carpet of complacency and inertia” (the narrator’s words) to root out a criminal operation led by the gentlemanly Paul Stewart. Essentially a gangster picture, the movie exhibits a noirish attitude toward its villain: Stewart’s kingpin is, like James Cagney’s hood in White Heat, just a mama’s boy gone bad, still sentimental about the house on Maxwell Street where he grew up. As in the more iconic Call Northside 777, the vintage location shooting is superb.
Written by Ben Kenigsberg
