Synopsis

When ex-tennis pro Tony Wendice finds out that his wealthy wife Sheila is having an affair with a handsome crime writer, burning rage soon turns to cold calculation. Driven by revenge and greedy for her substantial wealth, Tony embarks on an elaborate plot to commit the perfect murder.

Blackmail and old school ties combine in Tony's cunningly orchestrated scheme. Yet even the most perfect plans can go wrong. Frantic to salvage the situation he tries to cover his tracks and turn disaster into opportunity. But the devil is in the detail and a maverick detective is in dogged pursuit of the truth.

This gripping noir thriller, famously brought to the big screen by Alfred Hitchcock, transforms the ‘whodunnit’ into the ‘will they get away with it?' Is it possible to commit the perfect crime, or will justice always prevail?
