An actress is persuaded by her boyfriend, the head of a private-detective agency, to take a job as a housekeeper in the home of a wealthy elderly woman. It seems that no one has seen the woman for a while, and her new young husband is claiming that she is ill and doesn't want to see anybody and is refusing to let anyone in the house. Written by
Celia, played by the delicious Hy Hazell, is co-opted by her private eye boyfriend to pose as a servant girl to infiltrate a household where he suspects there is a murder being planned. The reason for this intended crime is never made clear but certainly appears to be well advanced.
The intended victim's husband is in league with another person who is posing as a doctor to keep the woman, Aunt Nora, in a sedated state.
Another typical British B offering that was churned out in great numbers in the period.
A well paced thriller that will hold your interest throughout.
