When Clarissa, the wife of a Foreign Office diplomat, discovers a body in her drawing-room, she is desperate to dispose of it before her husband returns home with an important foreign politician.

While Clarissa persuades her three house guests to assist her, it becomes clear that the murdered man is not unknown to certain members of the house, and the search begins for the murderer and their motive.

When a local police inspector visits the house Clarissa is left to deny a murder has taken place at all.

The season then concludes the following week with Night Must Fall (pictured).

When a cantankerous old lady, Mrs Bransom, hires a charming young man called Danny as a live-in companion, her niece, Olivia, a shy introvert young lady, is less than charmed and suspects Danny of foul play.

When news of a local murder is revealed, Olivia has good reason to suspect Danny of this crime.
