THERE ARE THREE ELEMENTS ESSENTIAL TO A SUCCESSFUL MURDER

From the dark and dingy streets of LA comes a treacherous tale of love and murder. The beautiful and seductive Phyllis Nirlinger unveils a cold-blooded scheme to murder her husband, but not before first taking out an insurance policy on his life—one which pays double if her husband dies in a fall from a moving train. Smart-talking insurance agent Walter Huff falls victim to the persuasive femme fatale. Caught in a web of greed and lust, the adulterous couple commits the almost perfect crime leading to guilt, suspicion, and betrayal.

"riveting, seamy and eye-popping ... an entertaining caper and a real feast for the eyes, too." -BroadwayWorld.com

Noir Fashion Night
