The wife of an important politician is blackmailed for a fatal hit and run accident she committed when she was in college.

When a middle aged couple hits difficult financial times because of his poor health, they decide to capitalize on some sensitive information they have on a former girlfriend who is now the wife of a rising legal and political star.

For a moment a almost felt sorry for the wife of the extortionist, but then I remembered she was pushing him to do the work so I didn't feel as bad. Overall I thought it was a fairly decent story.

This is good story. Mandell Kramer's stories all seem to be well written. Recommend a listen.

You do this or I'll tell that! All that and how! In this tell all tale. I began with a can of nuts and nibbled away til they were gone whilst clutching an aperitif! Hit and run accidents, marriages on the rocks and a social climbing politician make for yet another cbsrmt coup el radio! I so enjoy this old time mystery radio ever so much! Time for a morsel? You betcha!
