Interior Set

Murder is his business and generally speaking Edward Bare is a successful "business man." Married first to Monica, rich, doting and many years his senior, Edward waits amicably for her to die. It is not "poor Monnie's fault" that he comes one day to the mistaken conclusion that she is about to make a will in favor of her sister, and decides that, his only course is to hasten her end. But Edward has misjudged the old woman for she meant to leave him everything. As it is, he finds himself with less than he had when she was alive. Edward is not daunted: He looks around for another rich fish to net, and finds the answer to this pressing necessity in the person of Freda Jefferies, wealthy widow of a hotel proprietor. Freda, who has always seen that her head ruled her heart, marries Edward, at the same time keeping a tight hold on her purse strings. This does not suit Edward and when Charlotte Young, another rich woman, arrives on the scene, he is all set to remove the one that irks him most. Charlotte appears easier game than the tough Freda, and Edward sets about staging the scene for an exciting last situation. Which lady will receive the brunt of his murdering tactics? Packed with suspense and thrills, the machinations of the killer's mind are laid bare for the observation of the audience, and the twists are unexpected and spine-chilling.
Formerly listed as Gently Does It. "An entertaining melodrama" —NY News. "A climax that is chock full of the stuff that fine thrillers are made of." —NY World-Telegram.
