Additional Info

In this tense, dramatic thriller there are more than enough twists to keep your audience guessing. Beautiful Veronica enlists the help of a former lover to murder her writer husband, Gus, whilst all the time plotting to run away with her current lover. She becomes alarmed when Gus discusses the plot of his new novel and she finds it uncomfortably close to her murder plans. She presses ahead with her scheme, however, but things do not run entirely smoothly. Next day the police report the finding of a body... but is it Gus? And how 'personally involved' is the detective in charge of the case? The final denouement contains several more surprises before the guilty are brought to justice.
