 THE SHOW

Detective Mark McPherson thinks staring at the portrait of Laura, an ambitious, successful and beautiful advertising executive, will solve the mystery of her murder, but what’s really happening is that he’s falling in love with a corpse. His review of her letters and personal effete and interviews of three main suspects: Laura’s fiancée, something of the Old South’s last gasp; Laura’s patron and guide to New York society; and a young jazz nut whose interest in Laura’s record collection may not be limited to music; don’t seem to be getting him anywhere. Then, everything is thrown up in the air when Laura suddenly appears very much alive! The mystery remains: who then was the victim, who was the murderer, and will the murderer return to finish the job?
