In a fancy suburb in California, the gorgeous housewife Susan Gilvray finds a prowler outside her house late one night and she calls the police. Officer Webb Garwood and his partner answer the call but do not find anyone. Later Webb returns to Susan's house with the pretext of checking if everything is OK. Susan invites him in to have coffee with her. Webb soon learns that Susan is married to John Gilvray, a middle-aged broadcaster of a late night radio show. They also discover that they are from the same hometown. Webb makes a pass at Susan and even though she tries to put him off they soon start a love affair. When John becomes suspicious Susan ends her relationship with Webb. Though difficult Webb stays away from Susan. Without Susan's knowledge Webb plots a scheme to get rid of John; he simulates a scenario where John is "accidently" shot dead. There is an inquest and it is ruled that John Gilvray's death was not intentional. Webb quits the police-force a job he was never happy ... Written by

Did You Know?
Webb's partner speculates that Susan's house would cost "35 or 40 grand in this market". That would equate to about $320,000 to $366,000 in 2015. See more
When Webb drives out of the ghost town to chase after the doctor, the image is flipped. This may have been done to use previously shot footage but keep screen movement consistent going to and from the ghost town i.e. arriving from right to left and departing from left to right. This manipulation is revealed, and a continuity error created, because Webb is seen from the exterior shot sitting on the right side (of a left-hand drive car) as it drives past, but he is sitting on the correct left side in the very next shot taken from inside the car in the back seat.
