  • How awful! How unspeakably- I must retrace that number and call the police!
  • On the phone, she overhears a conversation of two men plotting the murder of a woman. Mrs. Stevenson then tries to retrace the call and call the police.
  • "Yes. A knife will be okay. as little blood as possible. our client wishes it to look like a simple robbery. Tonight at 11:15."
  • RISING ACTION
  • Mrs. Stevenson can't retrace the call, and not much is done. The police seem to be busy and she is getting frustrated.

  • Police Department? I overheard a call and these two men were plotting to kill a poor woman.
