Synopsis

While visiting her aunt in Rome, American secretary Nora Dralston finds the elderly woman suffering from a heart attack and rushes from the house to fetch Dr. Marcello Belli. She is assaulted and knocked unconscious; but a scream awakens her, and she sees what appears to be a man stabbing a woman. Nora faints, regains consciousness in a hospital, but is unable to convince Dr. Belli of the crime she witnessed. Nevertheless, he returns with her to the house of the now-deceased aunt, and they discover that it is inhabited by Dr. Terrani and his wife, Laura, and that other unsolved murders had occurred in the same area. Nora moves in with Laura, a former friend of her aunt. Dr. Terrani becomes a prime suspect, however, when Nora finds a box of newspaper clippings about the slayings. Newspaperman Landini, long interested in the case, offers to help Nora, who begins receiving mysterious telephone calls and finally a folder containing her photograph. One night, Nora finds Dr. Terrani stabbed; he tells her that Laura committed the murders and forced him to dispose of the bodies. As Laura tries to shoot Nora, the dying doctor kills Laura.
