Murder with a Twist . . . or Two or Three

Papa was a preacher, so Sunday was always begun with Sunday School and Church, and always ended with evening services, and Saturday evening also was always the same for me as a young lad. After supper I watched a little television . . . Dad & I would watch Lawrence Welk, followed by Perry Mason, and then for me it was off to a bath and bed in preparation for Sunday. Perry Mason was amazing . . . always just a bit smarter than the smartest criminals and was always a role model/hero for me as I tried to solve the crime as fast as Perry Mason could. Today, after watching so many old murder mystery movies with complicated plots it is difficult to fool me when heading down the path of a good mystery, and I'm sure that you also can foretell the outcome of many mysteries long before the end. This mystery had me baffled and intrigued long into the plot, and I challenge you to discover what is really happening as the story unfolds. Yes, this is a mystery of mysteries, not a sword and sandal epic like the title might infer. It could have taken place yesterday, or in the 1950's when it was produced or any other time . . . the mechanics of murder and deceit are as timeless as the sun and the moon . . . but the setting for this twisted tale of treachery takes place in France long, long ago. As the adventure begins we meet ladies' man Robert Dantes, the son of the wealthy Count of Monte Christo, as he is entertaining the lovely wife of another man in the seedy nightclub called the Black Cat. Watching from across the nightclub floor are three people in a dark corner, a father, his daughter, and another man. They watch Dantes and the pretty daughter is instructed to memorize Dante's face as she prepares to seduce him in a scheme that will bring the certain death of Dantes, but with a dastardly twist . . . or two . . . or more. During the first three quarters of the show I caught myself often thinking that I surely didn't see THAT coming. Well, I finally caught on, after so many twists that I was positively dizzy. I finally had the 'slap my forehead, NOW it all makes sense' moment . . . but then . . . those dastardly authors . . . the story started twisting in the other direction and once again I was surprised at the cunning way that the story was unfolding. Oh, my goodness . . . the ending would indeed be happy, but wow, what a ride! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
