Retired Scotland Yard Chief Inspector I. A. Morly is the author of a best-selling book on perfect murders and a popular lecturer on the ladies' club circuit. However, one of his cases, the killing of a prostitute, is was really committed by Morley himself although officially it's attributed to a presumed dead prime suspect whose body was never found. The innocent man turns up in America determined to make Morley pay for his crime. In the ensuing struggle, the accused murderer becomes Morly's second victim. Although the wily sleuth plants red herrings to confuse the police, he hasn't reconvened with the dogged and persistent Mrs. Columbo.
