One of the most original comedy-mystery plots of all time. It first ran as a short story in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, and was later a hit on "Alfred Hitchcock Presents", translated into a dozen foreign languages, reprinted in several anthologies. What happens when a famous mystery writer is murdered, goes to Heaven and discover's that not even St. Michael knows who murdered him? There's only one answer: Saint Michael sends him back to earth to relive the past twenty-four hours of his life in order to solve the murder before it is committed. The writer discovers everybody he knows has a good reason to kill him! And then - is he just going to sit there and let it happen a second time? So the writer must outwit both the murderer and the Archangel Michael.

I had problems with the opening scene in Heaven.  The way it is written is very dated.  Agian in my opinion this would be be very an older crowd and then I am not sure.  The set and costumes aren't a problem, but oh the script
