Plot Overview

A young writer and his editor listen to a tape recording of a popular mystery author's plotline for a new book. They soon come to realize that the author is demented and that the recording isn't the plot of a book, but the planning of an actual murder. Can they figure out who the victim is and get to that person in time?
