Description
Two once successful crime writing playwrights are writing a block bluster to pay off their mounting debts, or are they fulfilling their full potential by plotting the perfect murder? The nagging wife is the ideal victim, especially as she is heavily insured. It all seems plausible until their secretary is mistakenly killed and a stagestruck detective appears on the scene.
