Storyline

The cab driver taking Mr. Vinton to his destination is surprised to see he has business with Miss Julia Pickering and not her sister, Miss Cordelia. Miss Cordelia, aka Mrs. Welles, has her sister under her thumb. He's even more surprised to find that Miss Julia has written a book that Mr. Vinton wants to publish. When Mr. Vinton arrives at the elderly sisters' magnolia-scented Louisiana mansion, he's the one surprised, finding that the house perfectly matches the one Miss Julia had described in her story. As a guest in the house, he finds old furniture carved with lion's heads, brass cherubs, a stone bench in a rose garden -- all things from the book. Mr. Vinton's mind becomes troubled as he wonders how much the rest of Miss Julia's murder mystery might be true. Written by J. Spurlin

A publisher's rep pays a visit to an elderly Southern lady who has written a riveting murder mystery. He finds 'this prim and proper spinster woman lives with her bossy and unpleasant sister, a widow, and that elements of the manuscript appear to have been drawn from the very home the sisters occupy. He begins to wonder how much of the novel is fiction. This is a very low=key episode that stars the urbane John Williams of "Dial 'M' For Murder" fame as the publisher's rep. Nothing all that dramatic or exciting happens, so don't go expecting shootouts or any sort of sudden violence. As I mentioned in my review of one other "A.H. Presents" episode, they can't all be winners.
