Neat mystery with a good twist.


One of my favorites! Best of MRT.


Marty Carraway is a junior executive working in a Wall Street brokerage firm. Although uneducated in the field, he's a natural and is quickly promoted to the number two position. Prior to his promotion, he was having a fling with the big boss's secretary. Upon promotion, a door opens to a whole new set of problems, and maybe even a murder thrown in there somewhere just for fun.

Ralph Ragadio

A rising star in an investment firm is tired of the rat race and, feeling he has satisfied his curiosity about his abilities is ready to toss it all in for a quieter life. When his boss promotes him and promises him millions within a few years and the bosses younger wife promises him even more if he's willing to kill her husband, he has some things to think about. The ending, having made the point, dragged on a little to long.


This story drives home the adage of reaping what one has sown. Interesting and very sad.


Some bad personality traits in this story - men who are overly interested in their work and the women who are attracted to them (but don't like their personality trait).

Still, a fairly good story.


J.J. Masters, president of a major Wall Street firm, has neglected his wife, Margaret, for years. On her birthday, he brings home Marty Carroway, whom he has just appointed number two man in the firm, and leaves the two alone while he conducts some business on the phone. Margaret flings herself at Carroway; not only does she want him to love her, but also to help in her scheme to end the life of her neglectful spouse.
