An original short story taken from the anthology Motives for Murder, by members of The Detection Club
Award-winning author L.C. Tyler brings us a humorous tale of domestic intrigue and murder.
When Margaret poisons her husband after a small argument, she annoyingly fails to convince the law she is innocent and has to endure a trial. But the jury are on her side - aren't they?
