A freak accident on a golf course causes the death of the once famous sportsman Bob Kerry. His son who happens to be a Chief Inspector takes the view that the accident was of course murder. He's fed countless lies, and led down many blind alleys. A web of suspense and intrigue is spun as Jack sets about finding the truth.
I will forever love the work of Frances Durbridge, and this is another fine example of the brilliance of his plots. So many clues, so many red herrings, lots of interesting characters, all of whom seem to have no possible reason for lying. It's all nicely tied up at the end. Plaudits to those involved for keeping the unmasking til the very end.
Fine performances, Gerald Harper, June Barry and David Burke, all the players are great.the swinging Sixties seem a magical time, a little snippet like this from that period does wonders for showing what life was like back then.
I love this kind of mystery and would dearly love to see these wonderful stories revisited, there is gold in the books of Durbridge.
