A diary seems to reveal a murder, impelling a blackmail scheme. A wealthy man ravaged by a recurring nightmare dies, without leaving a will, infuriating his widowed niece-in-law, whose husband squandered everything. The suspicious niece-in-law grabs one of the elderly man's elaborate diaries before the executor can take control of it. The diary implies the nightmare is the murder of an elderly woman by her niece and nephew, via injection. The niece-in-law (Constance Ford) plans to carve a big chunk of the inheritance through blackmail. Written by David Stevens

Conniving Connie
29 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Constance Ford portrays Connie Walworth, who has just learned that she was left out of her father-in-laws will, since he was not fond of her. Connie however is a most conniving and determined woman, and learns of a series of diaries that the man kept and after reading one, finds out that he and her mother-in-law may have been involved in a murder for inheritance scheme that delights her no end, but coming up with a blackmail scheme to extort money will not go as smoothly as she hopes... Constance Ford is a real hoot here as Connie, giving a lively performance about this shameless woman not above fiancée stealing either. Nothing much new here, but she makes the episode work.
