Friday's Favorite OTR

Inner Sanctum: "8 Steps to Murder" 6/4/46

This is a nifty story told--as is often the case on Inner Sanctum--from the point of view of a killer. A newspaper columnist plans to whack a theatrical producer and has blue-printed out his impending crime step by step, so that nothing can possibly go wrong. He'll have a perfect alibi, while an unsuspecting playwright will get blamed for the murder.

But you can't think of everything--even something like an unexpected rain shower can throw the entire plan off kilter. The twist at the end of this story is a very good one. It's no surprise that the killer's plans would all unravel, but the exact detail that causes his downfall is something that many listeners probably won't see coming.
