A fabulous mystery farce concerning newly-weds Edgar and Mavis ...

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 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 ...

"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" ~ Times

"There are secret chambers, 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

"Delightful ... constant humor ... A good mixture of Agatha Christie, Monty Python, and Abbot and Costello!" ~ Canon, Memphis
