Description by

Chicago mobster Lee Barwell, on holiday in London, feels right at home when he finds himself in the middle of a blazing downtown shoot-out by rival English gangs. During the melee, Lee recovers a note explaining that four gangsters plan to meet at the Paradise Hotel and split up a million dollars in stolen cash. He trails them to the hotel, but when one of the conspirators is murdered, and no one can find the loot, the vacationing crime boss decides to take a turn as a detective, and solve the mystery.

Journeyman heavy Noah Beery takes a rare turn as the sleuth who solves the crime in this stylish offbeat British whodunit which also has fine production values and interesting Art Deco sets.

Product Description:

A stash of stolen loot has a cast of unsavory characters circling a large hotel.
