The Ace of Spades is a lively little British crime meller. Detective Nick Trent (Michael Hogan) sets out to investigate the death of a politician. The accused is a young bucko named Tony (Richard Cooper)-but where's the motive? Digging deeper, Trent discovers that the manipulative sister (Jane Carr) of Tony's fiancee (Dorothy Boyd) was the real brains behind the murder--even though she never sullied her hands with the victim's blood. The Ace of Spades was based on a novel by John Crawford Fraser.
