yeah, what was that whole chef/gardener act? those were just a ruse. ruse? clever word. you guys are writers. we usually write at the mansion. we're supposed to pretend to be the help when people show up. to continue that ruse? well, after we found andrea, joseph told us to pack up all of our stuff and write from here. we can't keep working here. this place is gonna be swarming with police in a half hour. that's why you're gonna get kenny and your computer and you're gonna go work on my boat. is that really necessary? you want to stay in business, don't you? all right. (thunder rumbles) (sighs) so is it just the two of you, or is marilyn here? that's andrea's stuff. andrea, our victim? andrea: i know how to punch up this chapter. andrea was one of us. lawrence: we've been writing ms. milner's novels for three years. andrea turned in our last manuscript this morning.
we're onto the next one now. so, where's marilyn? kenny: we've never met her. what? wait a minute, you guys write exactly like her, but you've never met her? well, she gives us storylines, general ideas. but we do the rest. (scoffs) uh... what are you doing?! excuse me, we're trying to work here. yep. me, too. there's no blood here. yeah, this wasn't the place where andrea was killed. this is andrea's computer, right? what's the password? we don't know. man, what's the damn password?! "nobel." thank you! thinks highly of herself. nobel... very highly of herself.
oh, got an urgent message to the editor in here. from when? looks like it was sent a week ago. "pay me commensurate with my written contributions "to the manuscript i will deliver to you next week, "in the amount of $100,000. "if you fail to, i will have no choice but to withhold "the manuscript and alert the media "that the bestselling author marilyn milner is a fraud. sincerely, andrea." so, this is about blackmail. sincerely, andrea." should we spend it wandering in some home improvement warehouse crowd: no! i say we go to ace crowd: yeah! get help when we walk in the door because we will maintain our homes and our weekends crowd: yeah! get your weekend back at ace the helpful place
look, when i found her hanging there, i took the manuscript and i told lawrence to call it in... where is the manuscript? what does that matter? she was threatening to withhold it, wasn't she? if she didn't leave the manuscript, that's a double dose of motive. (thunder rumbling) joseph: i took it to the printer. i'll go pick it up. i'll go with you. no, you won't. you're gonna wait here with me. (elevator bell dings) sarge? oh, yeah. let's see what we can come up with.
calleigh. thank you, sir. wow. the murder in marilyn's new book is identical to andrea edison. look at this. very first chapter, she says that the housekeeper was exsanguinated. it says here in chapter two that there was a puncture mark in-between the housekeeper's toes. really? i'm gonna call tom and let him know. chapter three, we got a mysterious visitor showing up from out of town. well, see, what's a good book without a mysterious visitor? okay, so who knows about this? uh, marilyn herself, the editor, the printers and the ghostwriters. right? right. hey, uh... does anybody have anything on chapter six?
i just read the end. the killer's not named. which means the ending is up to us. so, we haven't found the original crime scene? no, ryan's working on it... hey, tom? i have something i want you to check out. (sobbing) (panting) you're gonna want to see this. actually, i want to see this. marilyn milner's island. a thousand acres. we know andrea's blood wasn't drained in the house. so maybe we can get a little high-tech help to tell us where it was. see these puncture marks in andrea's third dorsal digital artery? i can only get as close as 200 feet, but even from here, i can tell that's another structure on the island. it's isolated and concealed. that's where she was drained of her blood, just like in marilyn's new book. yeah, i think that's where it happened. what do we got here?
yeah? yeah. oh... no! marilyn didn't! oh, man! you know what this is? oh, this is the rolls royce phantom. you can't get this thing off the showroom floor for less than 400 grand. ouch! i wonder if the iv and the needle come standard. with the blood. (grunting and gasping) oh, my god! we just found our original crime scene. no one has keys to that car except for marilyn. she loves that thing. andrea edison died in that car. could marilyn be in town?
no. she texted me from milan this morning. i'd show you the text, but you took my phone away. run a trace on that text, walter. okay? tripp: excuse me. are you marilyn milner? it's funny, i get that all the time, but i'm afraid not. really? well, we know who you are. i could write you an autograph, but it would be a fake. you know, in the modern world of technology, there are many ways to identify someone. (phone beeps) marilyn. i bought this car with the money from my first book. andrea edison was exsanguinated in that car, ma'am. boa vista: so, you told your editor that you were in milan. i was, until this morning. okay, well we know that andrea was blackmailing your editor,
saying that she was gonna expose your entire scam, so, you got motive. but i didn't know. joseph handles all of the writers. and he did mention that she was the most talented of the bunch. why would i kill someone who makes my life so easy? why don't you tell us? your ghostwriters work off your ideas. and? and the book never mentions who the killer is or what he did with the blood. i don't remember. an author that doesn't recall the content of her own work. okay, so not only do you not write your own books, you also don't read them? i'm really pressed for time. joseph did say, though, that the epilogue would answer all of the readers' questions. it's a bonus chapter, and it's only available on the audio version. the epilogue? narrator: he wanted the maid to know what happened to women who didn't behave. but he also wanted to keep her with him.
okay, what do we have? ready to go. let's hear it. narrator: the killer knew what he had to do. he took a crystal goblet, perfectly shined, worthy of her. he poured her blood in the goblet, and he drank her blood like wine. go back to that, please. he poured her blood in the goblet, and he drank her blood like wine. one more time. ...and he drank her blood like wine. "drank her blood like wine." mr. wolfe, we need to examine ms. milner's wine collection. ♪
caine: you murdered andrea edison, and then you removed her blood. tripp: then... you stored 'em... in these wine bottles. all because she was a better writer than you. she wasn't better. she just took credit for everything i wrote. yeah, like that exsanguination scene in love's last bite? i've been reading her work. my work. i wrote that scene. (chuckles) she told joe that she did. she took credit for it. yes, but you didn't tell joe the truth, did you? please. andrea played him with her short skirts and grad school vocabulary. and joe told her that she was meant for better things. you know what that means? her own book deal. off of my work. how'd you get her in the car? we finished our third book last night.
i said we deserved a ride in the rolls. we earned it. (both laughing) (thunder crashing) which is where you murdered her. i gave her a chance to make things right. she refused. i think that was the best chapter i've ever written. you mean the chapter you stole? you corrected the punctuation, you didn't write it. you didn't know anything about exsanguination until i laid it out for you. you don't know what you're talking about. i don't know what i'm talking about? you're the one who actually thought a vampire could empty a body of its blood supply. you need help, lawrence. no...
why not bury her? why drain her blood, put it in wine bottles and hang her in the library? because that's how it was done in the book. figured you'd think some crazed fan did it. yes, but we didn't. and now we're going to book you for murder. so, please. well, what're you thinking? he said the exsanguination was too slow. yeah. she was young and healthy. her heart should've been pumping fast. it means her blood would have pumped out more quickly. why do you think he had so much trouble draining it? i don't know. tom found hemlock on her, didn't he? yeah. so all that stuff gets in the bloodstream, slows the heart down? who put it there, frank?
yeah. so all that stuff gets in the bloodstream, this iwith icloud. 4s..? now..when you download a song on the go, it's there when you get home. make a change on the way to work, and it's waiting when you get there. bookmark a page on this, and it's ready on that. now the things you do on your phone, are everywhere you want them. automatically. icloud. on the most amazing iphone yet.

delko: okay, more of andrea's personal items. i've got nothing on the outside of the watch. delko: let's look at the bracelet. hmm, i mean, if you were going to poison somebody, you'd want to make sure you put it somewhere you know it would seep into their skin. bracelet is fluorescing red. it's positive for hemlock. the watch is as well, but only trace amounts. not enough to slow the heart. the hemlock was on her wrist?
yeah, that's right. what about perfume? perfume's positive for hemlock. at least now we know how the poison was delivered. "fatto in milano." made in milan. we know somebody that was just there. i'll have another. she certainly will. ah. marilyn, you sent andrea a bottle of perfume. as a gift. because she was my best writer. why would you send her a gift when she was blackmailing you? andrea thought she had what it took to be me. she kept threatening to expose me, and then joseph last week said he thought she was about to go through with it. so you knew about the blackmail. delko: you knew she was going to tell everyone that you don't actually write your own books. a week ago, she demanded $100,000. next time it could be a million.
so i did what i had to do. you tried to kill her. i sent her perfume. there was hemlock in that perfume. delko: you figured if you poisoned her slowly through the skin, that no one would notice. but i didn't kill her. we call that attempted murder. for that, you get 15 to 25 years. you know, i've known dozens of police officers. i've interviewed them, i've done ride-alongs. and i know how your mind works. is that a fact? you think there's a right and a wrong, and that if you arrest me some sort of justice is going to be served, but really you'd just be giving me fodder for my next book. which you will be writing from prison. you're under arrest. (handcuffs clicking) ow. marilyn? marilyn milner, is that you?
oh, my god... i made you! whoop, whoop, no callouts. who's up to grab dinner? i am. me. i'll meet you there. hey, frank, you up for dinner? uh, no, i'm waiting on a case meeting. so, you know... maybe next time. wolfe: guys, bad news. we just got a callout. homicide on collins ave. witnesses report the murderer was... a werewolf. (laughing) i hate halloween. boa vista: good luck with that. delko: frank, next time. yeah. captioning sponsored by cbs c.s.i. productions and toyota. >> next on 9 news now, millions
