Shockproof

When ex-convict Jenny Marsh visits her Los Angeles parole officer, Griff Marat, he lists the conditions of her parole: she must report to him every day and she must not carry a weapon or get married. He also warns her to stay away from Harry Wesson, who was partially responsible for her involvement in crime. But Jenny soon finds herself ensnared in a romantic triangle that pits the ne’er-do-well Harry against the caring Griff.
