Don't you just love a delicious murder mystery with enough suspects to choke a horse? There are plenty of bad guys that should have killed blonde bombshell Miriam King, but which character did kill her? Miriam gives wealthy bored husbands a wild time and wants desperately to marry one of them to guarantee her access to the 'good life.' One of our suspects is a shady fellow who demands that Miriam give him $5,000 within 24 hours or he will tell her current 'target' about her gold-digging schemes. Then there are two of the men she is gold-digging for - both very wealthy. She wants single millionaire Van to marry her but he resists. She asks married millionaire Bronnell for the $5,000 or she will tell his wife about their affair - he refuses but is worried about his wife learning of his infidelity. Then there is wealthy blonde Elizabeth who also wants to marry Van, but she needs to get Miriam out of the way because the sexy little vixen has all of Van's attention. Yes, Miriam King is murdered . . . and the killer will be caught . . . but until the very end I'm guessing that you will not know who the killer is. In fact, I'd bet a big bowl of white kernel buttered popcorn that you won't figure out the identity of the killer until his confession in the last moments of this true story whodunit thriller.
