Synopsis for "Cinder Block"Edit

A woman and her lover plot to kill off the husband by making it appear as though a fire broke out due to smoking in bed. Because the husband is older than the wife and jealous, he has a habit of locking her in her bedroom on the eleventh floor. The wife's lover thinks it won't be a problem because the firemen will rescue her. The fire burns for awhile but the firetruck doesn't arrive. The woman leaps from the window and the man tries to catch her but the impact kills them both. The reason the firetruck is late is because the man had not wanted to park his car outside the murder scene but parked it in front of the fire station, blocking the firetruck.

Synopsis for "Sight Unseen"Edit

A man pretends to be blind so that he can get away with shooting his wife and pretend that it was an accident, but he trips himself up by filling out a crossword puzzle that a detective notices in the evening paper.


I'm surprised they ran this cover. In my opinion, this is EC's most objectionable cover. They were just asking for trouble with this one.
