The Unsuspected

A woman is found dead in what seems to be a suicide at the estate of radio host Victor Grandison (Claude Rains). Grandison, who reads chilling murder mysteries on the radio, is at first suspected of murder but is quickly able to clear his name with the police. Then mysterious Steven Francis Howard (Michael North) arrives, claiming to be the husband of Grandison's niece -- who was thought dead in a shipwreck. Howard begins looking into the suicide and soon brings to light new evidence.
