Storyline

Elmdale's police chief Meyer and fire chief Riley are both after Penelope, a well-off widow. They both escort her to the local circus/carnival. Meanwhile, Montague--a con artist and card-sharp--also has designs on the widow, especially her money. He comes up with a scheme to get both Meyer and Riley out of the picture so he'll have the widow and her money all to himself. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com
