A disfunctional wealthy couple argue over the evening newspaper. She is a socialite who is running around on her husband, and she is worried he might be heading out to kill her lover.
Elsewhere, Richard Diamond has his plans for nightclubbing interupted when the rich man, Mr Sears, hires him to get solid evidence on his promiscuous wife. Not the prefered job for Dick, but it pays well, and he can combine some business with pleasure. Things go bad when an altercation breaks out in the club, and Dick is once again out of a job.
Can it get worse? Fred Sears shows up in Dick’s office, and he’s dead. By now, you’ve got the big picture, the scandal, the skeletons, and the players who would want Fred dead. Ride along with Richard Diamond to go through the facts with a fine tooth comb and see if you can figure out this mystery.
Was it the unfaithful wife, her lover, or the newspaper man who airs the family scandal on the front page? Don’t worry, Richard knows, and so will you when he springs his trap and explains it all.
