Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Publisher Victor Hartman (Arnold Moss) receives a series of tape recordings, ostensibly of the latest mystery novel written by Warren Barrow (James Mason). As Hartman listens to the tapes, the action of the novel is acted out for the benefit of the audience. The plot concerns a mystery writer in love with a married woman (played by Angie Dickinson) -- and as that plot thickens, Hartman begins to wonder if the story is merely fiction or a real-life murder scheme hatched by the diabolically clever Mr. Barrow. Whodunit specialists Richard Levinson and William Link adapted this episode from Henry Bingham's novel Murder Plan Six.
