Summary
"Inspired by a real-life murder case ... two friends ... strangle a classmate for intellectual thrills and then proceed to throw a party for the victim's family and friends--with the body stuffed inside the trunk they use for a buffet table. As the killers turn the conversation to committing the "perfect murder", their former teacher ... becomes increasingly suspicious that his students have turned his intellectual theories into brutal reality"--Container
