Synopsis of A Deadly Affair Airing On LMN
Mary, a married writer, is having an affair with Trevor. The secret meet-ups and phone calls are taking over her life. Juggling two relationships is hard work, and she is desperately trying to keep her husband Charlie from finding out. She knows it is wrong and has expressed doubts about continuing the lustful affair. Although, it doesn’t seem to bother her lover Trevor.
Charlie, a home contractor, is always away from home, causing Mary to feel neglected. Even now that she has her own lover on the side, she can’t help but to wonder if Charlie is indeed having an affair since all the signs are adding up.
To confirm her suspicions, she decides to trail her contractor husband to a home, where she finds him dead on the floor. An autopsy report confirms that Charlie was murdered. Now not only does Mary have to bury her husband, she has to come to grips with the fact that he had most likely been cheating on her for quite some time.
However, Mary is making it hard on herself. Her husband is barely in the ground 24 hours before she is seen gallivanting all over town with her lover. It’s not a good look since she has just released her latest book.
This is salacious, and the whole town is talking, including Charlie’s family. However, the town’s gossip soon leads to allegations of murder after Mary is accused in her husband’s death.
After all, most people who are murdered are killed by an intimate partner. Perhaps, Mary wanted her husband out of the way to continue her relationship with Trevor. Detective Malone, a hard-nosed detective, is on the case and pointing fingers directly at Mary since her fingerprints have been found on a knife.
Running out of time, Mary is desperate to find out more about her dead husband’s mistress, who she is convinced, is the killer. However, as the investigation heats up, and Mary’s life starts to unravel, Mary realizes that she may have been wrong the entire time, and that Charlie’s killer is closer than she ever could have imagined.
