Summary
"Early in this brisk dramedy, a jaded newsman laments that some reporters furnish the manure while some grow the flowers. Editor Joe Randall's newspaper is suddenly in the manure biz. To increase readership and revenues, he's pressured against his principles to come up with a sensationalist tale or two. So Randall revisits a love-nest murder of years past. Circulation soars. But living people - real people - involved in the story are victimized. Randall could never imagine the tragedy to follow."--Container
