Time Out says

Made four years before the Profumo affair gave such scandals a real-life significance, Losey's thriller - based on Leigh Howard's novel - deals with the murder of a diplomat's French mistress (Presle), and the pressures on a cynical cop (Baker) to pin the case on her other lover (Krüger), a Dutch artist from the lower classes. Although the script is dramatically weak, Losey's precise view of the characters in terms of class conflict and erotic obsession gives the film an edge absent in the work of most resident British directors of the period.
