Take a tour of the Black Museum with Orson Wells, and learn how a common object has become entwined with murder. In the days of polished carriages, and King Edward, the mandolin was a popular instrument, and it plays a key part in the murder we hear about today.
A young couple in love retire to their chambers, but when the cute, blond wife asks her hubby for a glass of wine for bedtime, he has an accident, and falls down the stairs. Time passes, and she remarries, but shortly afterward, her new husband goes on an errand, and also falls down the stairs to his death. Police and doctors are satisfied that both were accidental, but our story is far from over yet.
In voiceover, Orson Wells continues the narative and introduces the key evidence that turns the tables for our young killer. An anonymous letter arrives with the police to encourage them to look closer at the case. When the investigation begins to slacken, more letters arrive, and when the woman has remarried a third time, measures need to be taken to prevent yet another murder.
Will the cops put the pieces together in time? Will the young woman be taken to court and face judgement? Be sure to stay tuned to the end, and Orson will tell you how the case was decided in the court of law, and in the court of her friends and neighbors.
