~London After Midnight~
1927
Five years after the "suicide" death of Roger Balfour in his London home, detective-inspector Burke
is still investigating, unable to believe that Balfour committed suicide. Sir James Hamlin, Balfour's
closest friend; Arthur Hibbs, Hamlin's nephew; Lucille, Balfour's daughter; and the butler: these
are all still suspected. Inspector Burke, an accomplished hypnotist, solves the mystery by
hypnotizing the primary suspects, Hibbs and Hamlin, placing them in the murder setting, and
observing their reactions. Drawing a blank with Hibbs, who is in love with Lucille, Burke discovers
that his man is Hamlin.
