Who's first? Who's next? Who cares? When a household of sweet old ladies discovers that the handsome bachelor Homicide Detective Dennis O’Finn lives across the street, they are faced with the problem of how to attract his attention. The answer is a genteel murder. When a brash young woman reporter suspects the truth, she becomes the next target. O’Finn is terribly embarrassed when at last he discovers that he himself is the motive for these goings on and manages to solve the case. But the dear old ladies aren't finished...
