Would Edward commit murder for money? Yes. Would you like to see him do it? You should be ashamed of yourself.

But, mistakes are made. Poor choices. Now what? Kill again? Maybe, but maybe not. He might be found out. He might not get what he really wants. Of course, there is sex and money to consider, and happiness. Are they all one and the same? It all seems so simple some times. But, not in this show. This is NOT an Agatha Christie mystery. What starts out so simply becomes filled with twists and suspense. For something different, in your murder mystery world meet Edward. Who knows you might fall in love.

is taking a shot at his first mystery. Of, course those who know him will tell you that he is a bit unusual. So, when it comes to something a little twisted, he should do just fine. His lovely wife Ginger hopes he doesn't take the plot too much to heart.
