THE MURDER ROOM by Jack Sharkey

Two days after their wedding Edgar discovers that Mavis - a nasty piece of work - is being unfaithful.

After her first attempt to kill him by poisoning his cocoa fails when the cat dies instead, Mavis resorts to shooting him and then returning to her lover. Chaos and complications reign when it transpires that the shots were blanks and that Edgar's body has vanished ...

"There are secret chamber, secret panels and trap lids galore.
They're all operated by the most ridiculous contrivances and
gloriously mucked up. A high mad melodrama"
Frank Harris

"Really a minor gem ... witty and sophisticated "
Newcastle Morning Herald

"Murder has never been this funny. A spoof of all crime
thrillers ... it is good clean mirth all the way. The quick, smart,
extremely well timed dialogue of Jack Sharkey comes through
loud and clear [with] never a dull moment"
