Editorial Reviews

This is NOT a movie. This is a DVD Book. You read it on your TV, PC or personal DVD Player.

The story involves a series of murders taking place in a wealthy neighborhood in New York. The first victim is Christopher Robbin who is found shot by an arrow. An anonymous note with an extract from the nursery rhyme Who Killed Cock Robin is left behind by the killer.
District Attorney Markham finds the circumstances so unusual that he asks Philo Vance to help investigate the crime. Further murders are accompanied with similar extracts from Mother Goose, such as the case of Johnny Sprigg, "who was shot through the middle of his wig, wig, wig."

Midway through the book, an elderly woman confesses to the crimes, but this possibility is discounted by the police for physical reasons and by Philo Vance for psychological ones. The kidnapping and confinement of a little Miss Moffatt is luckily discovered by Vance and the police before the child suffocates in the closet in which she has been locked. Vance finally realizes the significance of a reference to the plays of Henrik Ibsen by one of the characters and arranges a spectacular finale in which the criminal is poisoned by a glass of liqueur which that person prepared for another suspect.
