Synopsis


A chilling and spine-tinglingly gripping thriller by Patrick Hamilton.


Two well-bred young men murder a fellow Oxford student just for the fun of it.


Placing the corpse in a wooden box, they invite a group of friends over to their Mayfair apartment - including the loving mother of the boy they've just killed.


Supper is served on the chest holding the gruesome contents.


But one of their guests is starting to become suspicious …


Will this daring pair get away with their cat and mouse games?
