A beautiful, sensuous and rich widow is brutally murdered in the most questionable of circumstances. The last person to see her alive is her brother-in-law and lover—a man later found guilty on circumstantial evidence.

How did she die? Who was the other mysterious lover to whom she constantly penned saucy letters? Why did the witness lie?
