Beginning in 1982, The Adam's Round Table, a group of America's most talented and successful mystery writers, convened every month in New York to discuss their craft. When author/agent Bill Adler suggested they each write a short story located in a different section of Manhattan, their enthusiastic response was Murder in Manhattan, a collection of short stories featuring a suspenseful cast of characters and plots set in the world's greatest city. Stories in this collection include:
"Lucky Day" by Mary Higgins Clark, performed by Betsy Palmer. A young bride suspects her husband's complicity in a mysterious disappearance.
"Vaudeville" by Whitley Strieber, performed by Roddy McDowell. An aging vaudeville comedienne dies, but not laughing.
"Till Death Do Us Part" by Dorothy Salisbury Davis, performed by Juliet Mills. A high-powered literary agent's sword is mightier than her pen.
"Directed Verdict" by Thomas Chastain, performed by Peter Graves. A veteran homicide cop unravels a complicated web of deception.

Read 1st & Last
The 1st & Last story rate 4 Stars as due the performers. The middle 2 do not deserve 2 stars for either the stories or the readers. Had to turn both my car & Bose headsets up to almost max & still could not always understand them. The stories changed time, directions or drug on with little meaning or purpose.
