Inspired by Francis Durbridge's original 1960s screenplay, Alan Bleasdale brings his unique voice to the genre of the mystery detective story. MELISSA tells the story of war correspondent, Guy Foster, who still mourning his wife's death, becomes infatuated with beautiful but mysterious PR girl, Melissa.

Guy and Melissa celebrate their good fortune, but before long, death and murder seem to be stalking them. Suddenly, Guy finds himself caught up in a nightmarish chain of events.
