Synopsis: A bored rich industrialist’s wife plots to kill her husband and have her lover assume the dead man’s identity. The marriage between wealthy and cold-hearted tycoon Wendell Atwell (Mike Connors, Mannix) and his adulterous wife Katherine (Jaclyn Smith, Charlie’s Angels) has soured and there seems to be no way out except divorce, which Wendell has refused. Katherine and her lover (James Franciscus, The Cat o’ Nine Tails) deviously hatch up a plot to murder her millionaire husband. She hires a world-weary private eye (Robert Mitchum, The Ambassador) to find her missing husband, but fails to inform the investigator that she knows full well the whereabouts of her husband. Difficulties arise when the investigator ends up being much better at his job than she originally expected and he may or may not have some ulterior motives of his own.

Hollywood veteran Ted Post (Magnum ForceHang ‘Em High) directed this top-notch cat-and-mouse thriller filled with fear, intrigue, mystery, and panic. The strong supporting cast includes Sybil Danning (They’re Playing with Fire), Fritz Weaver (Marathon Man), and Michael Anderson Jr. (The Sons of Katie Elder).
