Synopsis: "At the Medusa Club the members discuss the perfect crime and one man tells about such an accomplishment. Sir Jervase Jerningham wanted to get rid of his ugly wife and marry a beautiful film star. He gave his wife a 15 pound box of chocolates. She had consumed two thirds of them when she died. Of course poison was suspected. But no, it was proved that there was no poison. Instead, Sir Jervase, an accomplished cook, had produced chocolates so exquisite in taste that the woman had simply died from eating too many of them." (The New Yorker)
