Despite their success as TV thriller writers, Harold Kent has become dissatisfied with Paul Riggs, his writing partner, and wants to dissolve their association. Riggs, however, knows that he would not survive as a writer without Harold and threatens to blackmail him if the partnership is ended. In order to escape this impasse, Harold conspires with his wife, Emma, to kill Riggs, using a plot from a projected script, Murder by Misadventure, as his inspiration. The plan goes smoothly...or does it? Complications ensue, not least when the persistent and perceptive Inspector Egan visits the Kent's, and the plotters are in for some nasty surprises...Laughs, thrills and mind-boggling twists abound in this ingenious thriller.
