Better than I thought it would be
11 August 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Edmund Lowe (Johnny) is an escaped prisoner from England who has become successful in the USA. One day, he is blackmailed by fellow ex-prisoner Arthur Loft (Gobel). Loft will betray him and lead him back to custody in England if Lowe doesn't pay him a large amount of money. When Loft is killed, Lowe's friend Henry Wilcoxon (Bob) involves himself in the investigation. It's pretty tense for Lowe as the truth unfolds....

This film zips along at quite a pace and you'll need to pay attention to follow the different characters. If you are prepared for that, you will be pleasantly surprised as the story unfolds. And you won't second guess things.
