The Foreigner

October 2001

Charlie Baker is an English writer who shuns social events and needs to calm down after a series of misfortunes. He goes to his friend Froggy's fishing lodge, where Froggy and he devise a plan to pose Charlie as a foreigner with no knowledge of the local language.

Deathtrap

July 2001

Sidney Bruhl needs a killer idea. Once the toast of Broadway, his plays were masterpieces of the murder genre, but it has been years since his last hit. When unknown playwright Clifford Anderson posts Bruhl a script to die for, the desperate writer sees a lethal opportunity. This perfect plot is about to bend, to spiral, to spin totally out of control. And in Sidney Bruhl's isolated American home, enjoyable fatal fiction will become shockingly fatal fact.
