It’s not clear who committed this heinous crime. However, they quickly peg Jessica as the prime suspect. They bring in the Scotland Yard. Inspector George Sutherland gets the case. But he’s smitten with Jessica.
While doing her own sleuthing she get mugged.
But the questions remain: Who killed Marjorie? Who mugged Jessica? What is really going on?
