Danny Carlisle checks into a hotel and promptly steps out onto the ledge, apparently intending to kill himself. Danny recalls the events that have led him to this decision. His beautiful wife Sally had an affair with a married man called Rick and eventually decides to leave her husband. Danny warns her that men like that will never leave their wives for a mistress but she dismisses this only to find that her husband had it right all along. In despair, she commits suicide. Police Lt. Muldoon goes out on the ledge to talk Danny into stepping back into the room. Little does he know that this is exactly what Danny had in mind. Written by garykmcd
