Tony Wendice has married his wife, Margot, for her money and new plans to murder her for the same reason. He arranged the perfect murder. He blackmails a scoundrel he used to know into strangling her for a few of one thousand pounds. And arranged a brilliant alibi for himself. Unfortunately... The murderer gets murdered and the victim survives. But this doesn't baffle the husband: he sees his hirelings death as an opertunity to have his wife convicted for the murder of the man who tried to murder her. And that is what almost happens.
Luckily, the police inspector from Scotland yard and a young man who is in love with the wife discover the truth. And in a scene of almost unbearable suspense they trap the husband into revealing his guilt, thus freeing Margot.
