Storyline

Joe Rogers takes his wife to a small town called Oxport. They are there on business, though not the business they're pretending to be on. Rogers is an insurance investigator, and he wants to check up on one Mrs. Gillespie. She has had two husbands so far, and each died on the wedding trip. And each was insured with Rogers's company for $50,000. Written by J. Spurlin

Double Indemnity with a twist
12 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A woman takes out a large insurance policy on her husband, who dies shortly afterwards. Everything seems above board, but the senior claims investigator for the insurance company smells a rat. Sound familiar?

This story clearly owes a lot to Double Indemnity, though it is not as deadly serious.

Joe Rogers' reputation is on the line as he is sent to re-investigate the "femme fatale" who has buried two husbands and made $100,000 in the process.

We follow Joe on his journey of discovery. Not a journey of dark psychology, complex plot turns, or even comedy, but one that leads to a satisfying conclusion...
