The murder of a blackmailer brings forth two main suspects. The first is Justice, a renowned literary man with a mean disposition and an unpleasant personality. The second is his unhappy wife, Hobson, who has taken an unsuccessful mystery writer, Underdown, as her lover. Underdown tells

Hobson that he will confess to the murder and when she tries to stop him, she is hit by a truck and killed. Underdown is cleared by Marsh, the inspector brought in to investigate. This film has its moments, but they are few and far between in this overall confusing mess. The film is too long and

overwritten, and the acting is either very good (Justice) or very bad (Hobson, Underwood, and Marsh). Direction by Gilling doesn't do much to unravel the complicated script or maintain suspense, but the photography by Berman is better than the film requires.
