Nice ending, well foreshadowed; I "sort of" saw it coming, but only "sort of." The attempted murderer gets away with a punch in the nose; he should have been arrested. Crime drama; no supernatural elements.


I found this to be somewhat of a depressing story, at least up until the end. Unlike Andy, I did not see the ending coming at all.


If this were a true story, the woman who is the focal point would be the dumbest in the history of the world. First of all, she marries a guy she just met a few weeks earlier (Stupid thing to do, No. 1). While they're on their honeymoon she's approached by a stranger who introduces himself as a detective and says he suspects that her new husband has killed two previous wives and has her on his list as the third. She doesn't want to believe it, but at the same time lets the guy continue to bother her without as much as asking for an identification (Stupid thing to do, No. 2). All the while, she keeps this a secret while she snoops around trying to find out if it's true (Stupid thing to do, No. 3). You just want to grab her by the shoulders and shake her around. Oh, and the ending is ridiculous. LOL... one of my favorites, to be sure.


i couldnt agree with Ron more, since they gave away the story in the beginning, he basically gave her all she needed to know if she only just used her brain...then it would've been another story all together maybe even a little better.


The would-be murderer in this story has the lamest excuse for everything he has done when he gets outed in the end; what kind of a practical joker, no matter what lengths he is willing to go to, would involve a loaded gun? If he were simply joking, blanks would do the trick...


My mother-in-law married her husband 3 weeks after they met. Glad for it, or I wouldn't have my wife! Great story, my favorite so far listening chronologically. Five stars.


Loved this one. Great twist. I was surprised by the ending. Love these stories. I'm so glad they are here to enjoy all over again. Thank you!


A very suspicious new husband is actually the recipient of a cruel joke.


A woman learns that detectives are tailing her new husband because they suspect he killed his first wife.

Lady Palafox

A bit farfetched, but it keeps twisting and turning unexpectedly.

Naomi Campbell

A couple marry after only knowing each other for a few weeks go on a cross country honeymoon and learn more about each other. The wife learns more than she expected from a detective that has been following them. Good premise for a story, reasonably plausable plot, but the ending kind of falls flat...

I agree with Naomi and others that it was a bit farfetched, but still a good story and I wasn't expecting the ending that we got. I'm not sure if the one guy could've been arrested for anything, but it would've been nice to try.


Loved this one! Great mystery! The commercials were great too. Can you believe that a bank in NJ was offering 5.25% on their savings accounts !!!! Ah the good old days !


Awesome story! A bride learns from an ex–police officer that her new husband has been married twice before and that he killed both previous wives while taking them on the same honeymoon trip that he has planned for her. A love story that begins during a honeymoon in a terrifying way.


This one was obvious to me well before act two. It was not so much a mystery as a tale of what was the motive of the retired detective. The bride being that gullible was believable if you factor in the relative innocence of the times compared to the information in a screen swipe moment of today and her youth. The husband was disengaged with the relationship and seemed like a character that was only there because you had to have a spouse for the scenario only. The coworker was not convincing as a detective and had the worst excuses imaginable.


I love all these stories. I listen to a couple every night before falling asleep. Wish you were still producing them! Introduced to them while out in the desert on a camping trip back in the 70s. Just discovered this site and am stoked about that!


This old episodes are the BEST! Starting listening back in 1975 when I was 5. 😊


Enjoyed this story! Good story of how mind games can be played and sometimes how susceptible a mind can be. The would be murderer got off light in my book, should have been given an accidental flash wound with his own gun! Ah the good old days of high interest rates at banks lol and the grocery and food commercials are so fun to listen too!


Pretty similar to the premise of Journey Into Terror. Spoilers - Has a silly ending
