THE RIVERSIDE MURDER opens with a murder committed by an unknown assailant. Inspector Philip Winton (Basil Sydney) and Sgt. Mac McKay (Alister Sim) are quickly on the case, questioning witnesses and running down clues.

There's also an ambitious reporter named Claire Haines (Judy Gunn) who is interested in getting the scoop.

There's a growing list of suspects, all standing to gain financially from the victim.

If that's not enough, more murders occur! Complicating matters, Winton only has a small timeframe in which to solve the crimes.

This is a very enjoyable crime drama / mystery with a satisfying conclusion...
