Out of Sight Out of Murder PlaySynopsis

Peter Knight is grinding out a murder story in an old mansion where another author was murdered years ago. A weird electrical storm affects a cosmic snafu and his characters come to life. They are quickly out of control and their bodies pile up. Can Peter find the killer before the killer gets his author? Is romance with the ingénue leading anywhere? Where is the fortune mentioned in the will?
