A combination of mystery and terrifying suspense, with just a touch of the supernatural thrown in for good measure, the play is at its core a study in the deterioration of human character under the devious attack of the basest (but unconquerable) passions. Monique, an attractive and domineering woman doctor, has ensnared Fernand, a man of good will unhappily married to the shrewish Lucienne. The latter refuses to divorce Fernand and, insidiously, very cleverly, Monique succeeds in implanting in the mind of the tormented man the obsession that there is only one course open to him: Lucienne must be eliminated-murdered. The two, conspiring together, evolve one of the most ingenious murder methods in all the annals of crime-absolutely foolproof and impossible to detect. The plan is put into operation; it is apparently a complete success; and then...
"It has an arresting murder situation to consider, its characters are enigmatic and deceptive, its atmosphere is menacing, its detection is intelligent if not infallible. Finally, it has a solution that is steeped in treachery and evil and is quite likely to surprise you..."
