1928, London: A 'perfect' murder is planned in an advertising agency. Dark tale starring Bryan Dick and Susie Ridell.
1928: London advertising agency. Morris, Oldroyd and Reddy, has been caught taking bribes. One of their colleagues threatens to blow the whistle on them.
Instant dismissal will inevitably be the result, and at a time of severe unemployment, their future prospects are bleak.
Morris, a menacing bully, offers them a road out of their dilemma - a perfect murder, cleverly disguised as a tragic accident. But is there such a thing as the perfect murder?
One of three seminal psychological thrillers by CS Forester - dramatised by Paul Mendelson.
Most famous for his Hornblower series, CS Forester wrote these thrillers at the start of his career taking crime writing in a new direction, portraying ordinary, desperate people committing monstrous acts, and showing events spiralling terribly, chillingly, out of control.
