A stylish and witty suspense play that combines laughter with thrills. Arthur Sinclair is a successful world-famous mentalist in the tradition of Joseph Dunninger. His beautiful wife Allison plots his murder for the commonest of all motives—greed. She enlists the aid of a struggling young actor. Her foolproof murder plan cannot possibly misfire as it’s too skillfully inventive—or is it? After all, Arthur (as everyone knows) has psychic gifts. But does he? Once the killing scheme is set in motion, the plot begins to twist and turn. Nothing is as it seems. It will take all of your mental powers to solve this wildly clever and entertaining thriller.
