There are times when one watches a suspense thriller show and fantasizes about living those moments in real life.

Only Murders in the Building – Synopsis
Starring Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez in lead roles, Only Murders in the Building narrates the tale of three strangers who share nothing in common except their love for crime podcasts and their apartment in West New York.

With their logical thinking skills, witty approach for clues, and a pinch of humor, the trio success investigates the case and, in the meanwhile, builds a strong friendship. However, not everyone in the group is as innocent as they seem. When they find the black sheep in their group, they need to find and decipher clues to reach the real culprit before it’s too late.
