The death of a playboy points the finger of suspicion at Bowman (Arthur Lovegrove), in whose divorce suit the dead man had been named.


Critical reception

Sky Movies noted "Another dip into the Merton Park Studios filing cabinet that housed their short Scotland Yard mysteries, hosted by mournful-faced criminologist Edgar Lustgarten. The director is Ken Hughes, who briskly illuminates the case in question and was later to go to on bigger - if not better - subjects, including The Trials of Oscar Wilde and Mae West's last picture, Sextette."[3]
