Summary Shriek in the night: A psychological thriller revolving around the non-accidental death of a wealthy philanthropist. Only a final shriek in the night is heard when the victim plummets from his penthouse balcony the night of the murder. Nearly everyone in the apartment building falls under suspicion, but when three more murders occur, the police are baffled. Hoping to outdo one another, rival reporters, Pat Morgan and Ted Rand begin to do independent investigations. If they don't solve this whodunit quickly, someone else may fall victim to the shadowy killer whose calling card is a letter threatening, "you will get it!"
Scream in the night: Detective Jack Wilson who, with his partner Wu Ting, is on the trail of Johnny Fly, an infamous jewel thief. The pair of sleuths wind up in Singapore, where Fly has made off with the lovely Edith Bentley's precious ruby. While in pursuit, Wu Ting is slain by Fly's deformed henchman Butch Curtain (also played by Chaney), and Edith is kidnapped. It is up to Jack to infiltrate Fly's gang, rescue Edith, recoup the ruby and get vengeance for his fallen partner.
Triumph of Sherlock Holmes: An adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The valley of fear, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are investigating a murder that occurred at Birlstone Castle, and that seems to be related to an underground society of Amerian coal-miners who've dubbed themselves, "The Scowlers." They discover that the head of the secret society, Professor Moriarty, has more than enough motive to be found guilty of the crime.
Mr. Moto's last warning: Based on the character created by John P. Marquand. Mr. Moto is a Japanese detective who finds himself ensnared in a world of spy games and international intrigue when two villains plot to ignite a war between the British and French by sabotaging French ships and implicating the British as the culprits. Mr. Moto fakes his own death then poses as a local merchant to stop the evildoers.
