A gentleman is shot dead in his study. The police come in to solve the crime. A young detective weaves his way through danger and an intricate set of clues to catch the killer. Watch for the scene were a murder is committed by shooting a gun through a mail slot in a door. The climax is terrific and similar to Secret of the Blue Room.Written by

Basil Sydney and Alastair Sim play a pair of Scotland Yard detectives assigned to find the murderer of a rich man who is shot while looking out the window of his estate. A couple of more murders follow of some business partners and suspects get eliminated. Just like in Agatha Christie's Ten Little Indians.
Reporter Judy Gunn is someone you'll have to decide whether she's more of a help than a hindrance to Sydney. He likes her well enough, but he's got a murder to solve. As for Gunn she's looking to trade up from gossip columnist to crime reporter on her newspaper.
It's a British Quota Quickie, their term for a B film and this could have come out of a studio like Monogram with the threadbare sets and skimpy plot though not lousy editing.
As for the mystery just think about who was the doer in Ten Little Indians and how it was done.
