Synopsis for "Murder on Another Planet"
Louise Mason learns that her old friend Michael Brayden has been murdered. His second wife relates she heard her husband being murdered in the upstairs part of their home, but was powerless to stop it, as she is confined to a wheelchair.
Mason decides to investigate the suspicious circumstances in her friend's death, donning her costumed identity of the Blonde Phantom for the first time in years. Believing the murder to be the result of a robbery, she wastes little time in locating the person who sold the computer hard-drives that were stolen from Brayden's office. She discovers that he got the hard-drives from a guy who found them in a dumpster a week ago, though the murder only occurred forty-eight hours ago. Locating a security tape of the bodega next to the dumpster, she sees that a woman dumped the hard-drives there.
Piecing together a new theory about why Brayden was murdered, looking through his old legal files at the law office of her old boss, Blake Tower. She soon confronts Brayden's seemingly grieving widow, Amanda, accusing her of murdering her husband and of pretending to need a wheelchair. She discovered that Brayden's murder was exactly six years to the day of the day that Amanda was hit by a drunk driver, supposedly paralyzing her. Brayden was actually the driver who struck Amanda, and she orchestrated their relationship in order to get back at him. She needed to wait until they were married five years as part of their prenup policy, explaining why she waited so long before murdering him. She wanted to get back at him because after the accident she was required to have an emergency hysterectomy in order to save her life. Amanda attacked Louise after she espoused her theory, though she was no match for the Blonde Phantom.
