Wait Until Dark

by Frederick Knott, adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher

A sinister con man, Roat, and two ex-convicts, Mike and Carlino, are about to meet their match. They have traced the location of a mysterious doll, which they are much interested in, to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his blind wife, Susy. Sam had apparently been persuaded by a strange woman to transport the doll across the Canadian border, not knowing that sewn inside were several grams of heroin. When the woman is murdered the situation becomes more urgent. The con man and his ex-convicts, through a cleverly constructed deception, convince Susy that the police have implicated Sam in the woman’s murder, and the doll, which she believes is the key to his innocence, is evidence. She refuses to reveal its location, and with the help of a young neighbor, figures out she is the victim of a bizarre charade. But when Roat kills his associates, a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues between the two. Susy knows the only way to play fair is by her rules, so when darkness falls she turns off all the lights leaving both of them to maneuver in the dark until the game ends.

“…a vulnerable woman discovering unexpected resources that allow her to turn the tables on her assailants is still the main draw…goosepimply climax…a gripping finish.” —The Los Angeles Times

About Sabrina Biehl

Born a 10th generation Oregonian, (5 generations on each side) I have an enthusiasm for learning and teaching new things. After a ten year mini career in the dental field I moved on to research and embraced the social web. Though the internet is far too large for any one person to claim to be an expert, I can hold my own with the latest trends.

I enjoy researching and writing blogs. As the "Internet Program Director" have embraced the routine schedules because updating unique content is where all the fun is at! Well, actually other people appreciating the content is even more rewarding and it is my job to help content get noticed. I truly am suited to the fast pace of internet trends, with the intense curiosity to understand the statistics.

I have a wide variety of interests but most relate to embracing technology as a part of everyday life. Social networks are a tool and they don't hold me back from enjoying the real world. As a mother of three boys I gather and store information like a squirrel, grabbing what I can in the moments I have to myself and storing it for later. There is always something entertaining, educational or inspirational to appreciate on the internet that I enjoy sharing with friends and family.

The world is a giant source of puzzle pieces and I am a sorter, creator and distributor of the big picture. Certainly I am an expert on where and how to use our community site, so don't hesitate to throw interesting things my way. Everyone is a part of the conversation!
