Crime of Passion - A Noir Thriller

Please choose a format above.

Barbara Stanwyk is Kathy Ferguson, an ambitious, shoulder-padded dame of an advice columnist.

Until a coupla dicks from the El Lay P.D. stop by the newspaper on a tip about a local murderess. Despite vowing never to marry, she falls in love with flatfoot Bill Doyle and moves to Angel Town, baby - but soon learns she ain’t cut out for the homemaker lifestyle.

To keep busy between coffee klatches, she becomes obsessed with Bill’s career - even if it means bloodshed and hanky-panky for a coveted promotion. 

WRITTEN BY: Bridget Nelson, Mary Jo Pehl, Lily Meyer, Matthew J. Elliot.
