A tense psychological study of guilt and obsession by the author of The Business of Murder. Dead Guilty concerns an attractive young graphic artist whose leg is badly injured in a car crash that occurred when a business associate suffered a fatal heart attack at the wheel. Housebound and depressed, Julia is tormented when things disappear, a Mexican orange blossom materializes on her shambling Victorian terrace and someone prowls upstairs at night. While a kindly counselor contends with Julia’s manic tendencies and a besotted handyman helps around the house, the excessively solicitous widow invades Julia’s life. Suspense builds as the question becomes whether the affair Julia was enjoying with her now dead colleague will cost her her own life.
CAUTIONS: If this were a movie it would be rated PG-13.
