SYNOPSIS

The setting is an apartment in Mayfair, London, in the 1920s.
The story, based loosely on the Leopold and Loeb murder case, is about two students, Wyndham Brandon and Charles Granillo, who murder fellow student Ronald Kentley as an expression of their supposed intellectual superiority. The two place the body in a wooden chest and, to add spice to their handiwork, invite a few acquaintances, including the dead man’s father, round to a party, the chest with its gruesome contents serving as a supper table.
