I know where you got that temper from: Your Uncle Harvey on your mother's side

***SPOILERS*** It's when Aunt Victoria Ironside, Jessie Royce Landis, came to see Chief Inronside, Raymond Burr, about a missing friend of her's Roslyn McFee he just thought that she's been reading two many crimes novels. That in her claiming that Roslyn had been murdered by her husband businessman Harvey Mcfee, Arthur O'Connell, whom she was on the outs with. It seems that Roslyn being in charge of collecting dues for the Tuesday Night Bridge Club didn't show up for its usual Tuesday night bridge game. This has never happened since the club came into existence some five years ago! In trying to placate Aunt Victoris Ironside checks into the matter of the missing Roslyn McFee and sure enough finds out from her husband Arthur that she went on an unexpected vacation without telling any of the members of her bridge club!

At first thinking that his Aunt Victoria was a little bit batty Ironside soon realizes that Mr. Mcfee was holding something back in what really happened to his wife Roslyn. He also finds out with the help of Aunt Victoria and her fellow bridge club members that he's having an affair with his secretary Val Singleton, Gail Kobe, behind his wife's back! It's when visiting the McFee house that Ironside sees that he's a bit paranoid about what's in the basement and alarm bells start to ring in his head. Enough to take Aunt Victoria seriously enough to start a full scale investigation of Mr. McFee and his connection to his wife Roslyn's disappearance! As well as McFee obsession in committing the perfect crime in a crime committed some 60 years ago in England back in 1910 that's a lot like what happened to Roslyn McFee now in 1969!

****SPOILERS*** Using a bit of psychology as well as rock hard police work Ironide did figure out not just what happened to Roslyn McFee by reading a book that was in McFee's personal crime library but also knowing in advance to not just who committed it but preventing him from committing a second murder as well!. And it was Aunt's Victoria women's intuition in what really happened to Roslyn McFee and her pushing him to investigate it that got Ironside to solve her murder and prevent another one from happening!
