When Detective Mark McPherson first falls under the spell of Laura, he believes he has fallen in love with a ghost. He has come to her former flat to investigate the circumstances of her murder. From her portrait, her letters and her personal effects he builds up an image of a tantalisingly attractive and real woman. When she actually turns up in the middle of a violent thunderstorm, it becomes obvious that it was not she who was murdered, and a web of complications begins to weave its way into McPherson’s life. Well-handled mystery and suspense assured this play’s success both on Broadway and in the subsequent film version.
