The heartless wife of a banker is engaged in two extra-marital affairs. One with a penniless artist, the other a married bookmaker. Her husband becomes suspicious and begins to follow his wife, ultimately to a rendezvous on Hampstead Heath. Just as he is about to confront her, he slips and is apparently knocked unconscious. Later that evening the body of his wife is found strangled on the Heath. Detective Inspector Marshall is put in charge of the investigation. The banker doesn’t tell the police he was following his wife and relies on a fellow banker to provide him with a bogus alibi, while he sets about proving his innocence.
The plot is entertainingly interwoven by screenwriter Barbara S Harper; and cinematographer Walter J. Harvey brings an air of tension to proceedings.
