Tony Wendice, a former tennis pro, married his wife Margot for her money… and now plans to murder her for the same reason. He arranges the perfect crime, blackmailing an old acquaintance into strangling her and arranging a brilliant alibi for himself. But when things go drastically wrong, with Margot surviving the attack and her assailant dying instead, Tony sees another way to guarantee her death and his wealth: making sure she is convicted of his old friend's murder. Will he succeed… or will his plot be foiled?
