Harold Strickland (Victor Platt), boss of a successful soft drink company, is shot dead by a burglar he catches red-handed - but said burglar doesn't get away with more then 50 Pounds, which baffles Scotland Yard inspector Mann (Bernard Lee) a bit. But he has little to go on but the bullet from the burglar's gun, which as an isolated clue is pretty worthless. What the inspector doesn't know of course is that the burglar was actually one of his company's delivery drivers, Rex (Gordon Boyd), who has been hired by Strickland's partner Merril (John Van Eyssen) to kill him and make it look like a burglary - basically because Merril wants to take over the company on his own and also has an affair with Strickland's wife Freda (Moira Redmond). And it seems he has just committed the perfect crime - if it wasn't for Rex, who's a bit negligent when it comes to getting rid of the gun, so two young punks nick it right out of his delivery truck, then try to sell it to a pawn shop - but the shop clerk, instead of just giving them money, has them come back later under a pretense and calls the police, who take the young punks into custody and question them. Mann isn't convinced for one moment that they did it, and ultimately he gets the truth out of them as to where they have the gun from. Problem is, in the meantime, Merril has learned that Rex has messed up, so he decides to go after him to silence him for good, and it's really a question of time now if he or the police will get to Rex first ...


A nice no-frills crime thriller that might not hold much surprises for the audience, but moves along at a steady enough space to just entertain from beginning to end, with a direction that keeps things down to earth and a strong cast, making this very solid low budget genre entertainment.
