Businessman Glenn Howard's wealthy wife, Maggie, wants them to go and live in Bermuda, meaning he would have to give up his job. The life of a kept man does not appeal to Glenn, who also has another woman in his life, so he devises a seemingly foolproof plan to do away with his wife, enjoy her money and indulge his new love. Not only will he be in the clear, but the prime suspect will be his wife's former lover, Sam Blaine. Working with his close friend, an actress named Sheila Wallis, Glenn carries out the plan and everything seems to be working as it should - until the arrival of Superintendent Remick....

Unlike other murder mysteries, the audience is party to the dreadful deed and watching Glenn smilingly lie his way out of one tight corner after another, makes the urge to shout 'He did it!' almost overwhelming.
