Kay Halaran, a pretty, no nonsense, defense attorney, defends her ex-husband, Peter Hollister, who is charged with the murder of his lover’s wealthy, older husband. Unbeknownst to Peter, his lover, Claire Reiniger, hired a private detective, Angelo Vitale, who was blackmailing her, to do the deed. Vitale, however, frames Peter for the murder, leaving himself in the clear; and, because there would no easy way of explaining it without implicating herself, Claire has no choice but to go along with it. INTIMATE RELATIONS is an imbroglio of conflicting loyalties and motives, with an ending that is as logical as it is surprising.
