Nice ending, well foreshadowed; I "sort of" saw it coming, but only "sort of." The attempted murderer gets away with a punch in the nose; he should have been arrested. Crime drama; no supernatural elements.

I found this to be somewhat of a depressing story, at least up until the end. Unlike Andy, I did not see the ending coming at all.

If this were a true story, the woman who is the focal point would be the dumbest in the history of the world. First of all, she marries a guy she just met a few weeks earlier (Stupid thing to do, No. 1). While they're on their honeymoon she's approached by a stranger who introduces himself as a detective and says he suspects that her new husband has killed two previous wives and has her on his list as the third. She doesn't want to believe it, but at the same time lets the guy continue to bother her without as much as asking for an identification (Stupid thing to do, No. 2). All the while, she keeps this a secret while she snoops around trying to find out if it's true (Stupid thing to do, No. 3). You just want to grab her by the shoulders and shake her around. Oh, and the ending is ridiculous. LOL... one of my favorites, to be sure.

i couldnt agree with Ron more, since they gave away the story in the beginning, he basically gave her all she needed to know if she only just used her brain...then it would've been another story all together maybe even a little better.

My mother-in-law married her husband 3 weeks after they met. Glad for it, or I wouldn't have my wife! Great story, my favorite so far listening chronologically. Five stars.

The would-be murderer in this story has the lamest excuse for everything he has done when he gets outed in the end; what kind of a practical joker, no matter what lengths he is willing to go to, would involve a loaded gun? If he were simply joking, blanks would do the trick...

Loved this one. Great twist. I was surprised by the ending. Love these stories. I'm so glad they are here to enjoy all over again. Thank you!

A very suspicious new husband is actually the recipient of a cruel joke.

A woman learns that detectives are tailing her new husband because they suspect he killed his first wife.

A bit farfetched, but it keeps twisting and turning unexpectedly.

A couple marry after only knowing each other for a few weeks go on a cross country honeymoon and learn more about each other. The wife learns more than she expected from a detective that has been following them. Good premise for a story, reasonably plausable plot, but the ending kind of falls flat...

I agree with Naomi and others that it was a bit farfetched, but still a good story and I wasn't expecting the ending that we got. I'm not sure if the one guy could've been arrested for anything, but it would've been nice to try.
