Plot – Young Charlotte 'Charlie' Newton lives a far too quiet life at home with her parents, Joe and Emma, and her siblings, Anna and Roger, in Santa Rosa, California. Charlie would like for something exciting to happen so she is unable to contain her joy at the unexpected news of the arrival of charming globetrotter Uncle Charlie Oakley, her mother's younger brother. Shortly after his arrival, however, Uncle Charlie begins to act strangely: he makes an excuse to remove an article from the newspaper; he does not want to be photographed; he refuses to take a survey two government representatives give the family. These signals are beginning to cast doubts into the niece's mind about her uncle and when she finds out that the police are hunting for a mysterious killer who seduces and kills rich widows, Charlie's affection for her uncle is soon replaced by suspicion.
