Passion . . . deceit . . . murder
These were the essential ingredients needed to boost the ratings of the soap opera "Rivals." But this time when the director called, "Lights, camera, action," Teague Slaughter's leading lady wound up dead. It was a murder that wasn't written in the script.
Had on-screen Casanova Teague Slaughter taken the scene too far? After all, he was the consummate villain, had been dubbed the "Kiss of Death," the star with the poison lips.
Head scriptwriter Rae Magill knew how dangerous Teague was to any woman who fell under his power. She'd been warned to stay away from him, but Teague sought her out. What did he want from her?
She got her answer when his lips met hers.
Would she become the next victim of the Kiss of Death?
