The Trophy WifeBook - 2005
Virginia Woolley stands to inherit eight million pounds upon her husband's death. Her husband, Maurice thirty years her elder, drowns his unhappy knowledge of his wife's infidelity in bottles of whisky, waiting for his life to draw to an uneventful close. Like with her other marriages, Virginia must do something about her situation. Virginia meets a young landscape architect who, out of work, has no means to support himself other than the dole. Christopher Elms finds himself falling in love with the wealthy seductress, to the point where he insists that in order to stay with Virginia, he must kill her husband. A team of highly skilled detectives takes up the murder case, with the help of Maurice Woolley's sister, whose suspicions of Virginia were strong from the start. Are Virginia's carefully laid-out plans enough to free her from her husband, and place Christopher in jail, letting this black widow off with another easy fortune?
