STORY SYNOPSIS & CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

ABSOLUTELY MURDER has all the elements of the classic "dark-and-stormy-night" mysteries; an unsolved murder, a young girl and her two rival boyfriends, stranger-than-strange strangers, a mysterious doctor, a murderer, and a corpse that just won't stay put! Find out which boyfriend Kate decides to marry, who the murderer is, and what happens to the wandering corpse!
