    Mr. and Mrs. Bunting have sunk their savings into their house with plans to let rooms. Mr. Sleuth is their only lodger. Mrs. Bunting notices their savior’s strange habits are not mere eccentricities. When his late-night forays seem to coincide with the lurid headlines her husband reads to her about the grisly murders all over London, she slowly realizes she may be harboring a monster, and if he’s discovered, it will mean ruin for the Buntings.

    Ein geheimnisvoller Frauenmörder treibt im Londoner Eastend sein Unwesen. Man nennt den Unbekannten, der seine Opfer - alle jung und blond und hübsch - auf schreckliche Weise verstümmelt "Jack the Ripper". Eines Abends stellt sich bei Ellen ein neuer Untermieter vor - von Kopf bis Fuß ein Gentleman. Ellen ist begeistert, auch wenn der neue Mieter exzentrische Vorlieben hat - zum Beispiel immer nur nachts das Haus verlässt. Dann kehrt unerwartet Daisy, Ellens 20-jährige Tochter, von einem Landaufenthalt nach Hause zurück.
