A clever and very unusual mystery concoction with many surprises....
25 February 2006 | by ccmiller1492See all my reviews

Henpecked husband (Higgins) devises an ingenious plot to rid himself of his large, loud overbearing wife without implicating himself. But instead of freeing him, the murder sets off a chain of weird events that cause his life to become a living hell of anxiety. A detective (ironically played by Ironside) is relentless in pursuing his suspicion that our winsome "hero" is guilty. The fictitious client "Zargo" (Abraham)literally moves in on him like a hallucination taking over his life, causing him to quarrel with his less than obliging new mistress (Bishop). Will any or all of these people drive him mad enough to confess? Viewers are sure to be drawn into this clever and unusual mystery concoction wondering what will happen to the desperate killer so engagingly played by Anthony (Corlan) Higgins with many surprises along the way.
