Hire originally Hirovitch is a lonely bachelor who works as a tailor, with no human contact outside his job beyond occasional visits to a brothel and a bowling alley Though he talks to no people, he observes them closely and in particular is struck by a young woman called Alice who moves into the building opposite and never closes her blinds He spends his evenings secretly watching her, with more than just curiosity or lust because he has fallen in love with her

One evening the murdered body of a young woman is found nearby and, watching his neighbour, Hire sees her boy friend Émile, a petty criminal, trying to wash blood off his raincoat and hiding a handbag Hire says nothing to the police, because he wants to protect Alice, but then the police start investigating him, with the inspector trying to trick and intimidate him into confessing

While watching Alice one night from his darkened apartment, a flash of lightning reveals his staring face Alice is at first horrified at being spied on and then is intrigued at who he can be She engineers a meeting on the landing outside his flat, but he is too embarrassed to acknowledge her Next evening she looks openly back at him and indicates that she is coming over In the end he agrees to meet her at the railway station restaurant, where he declares his love for her He says he owns a small house in Switzerland to which the two of them could flee, which would separate her from the murderer Émile, with whose crime she is complicit, and get the police off Hire's back

He buys two train tickets, giving one to Alice, and writes a letter to the police inspector denouncing Émile At the station Alice does not turn up, so he returns to his apartment The inspector is there with Alice, who placed the murdered woman's handbag among Hire's things for the inspector to find Hire makes a break for it, but falls from the roof and is killed Only later does the inspector read the letter and find Émile's bloodstained raincoat
