Lethal Bookworm
30 October 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Edward Andrews plays bookseller Frank Logan, who is married to a beautiful wife named Louise(played by Patricia Barry) who has numerous affairs, inspiring Frank(who does read all the books he sells) to kill her lovers by various ingenious means, and that extends even to her brother and a private investigator. While vacationing at their cabin, Louise starts an affair with yet another younger man(played by Ed Nelson) but now, Frank decides to dispose of them both in his most clever scheme yet, but Frank may turn out to be too clever for his own good... Andrews is quite good as the charming but ruthless killer, and episode has a playful yet menacing tone all the way through.
