Betsy Paxton dreams of being an actress, but for now, she's a switchboard operator at a law firm. She lives vicariously through the crime novels she reads and her vivid daydreams. But after Harold Weston, her handsome boss, gives her the seemingly innocent gift of a scarlet carnation, she finds herself living out a real-life spy story. Who's telling the truth and who can she really trust? Will Harold prove to be the hero she thinks he is, or is their relationship nothing more than a short-lived fantasy?
