Jack Sharkey’s "The Murder Room," is not just a whodunit, but a spoof of one. Replete with inept criminals, an equally inept police force, and a set of characters culled from every murder mystery out there.
The Murder Room, tells the story of bland Edgar Hollister who marries a gold-digger, Mavis Templeton. After a couple hours of painful marriage, Mavis apparently tries various means to bump off her apparently rich husband. All of this is just apparently, because blank shells might have been in the pistol - who knows? - and maybe the cat didn’t really die when it drank the poisoned cocoa - who knows? - and maybe it was all a dream, or amnesia. The Murder Room has also been described as Abbot and Costello meets Agatha Christie, with a little Monty Python thrown in - Murder has never been this funny!
