starts slowly and then becomes totally implausible
Arthur Kennedy,the parachuted in American actor,is supposed to be an estate agent in rural Sussex.So you start on a rather fanciful note.Unhappily married,his wife prefers to visit mother rather than go to Paris.Kennedy manages to get involved with the nefarious activities of Smith and her convict brother.He gets into all sorts of scrapes,as estate agents are wont to do,even to the extent of bribing a ships captain to spirit him and Smith out of the country.Eventually caught by the police he confesses all including the supposed murder of the brother.Only it turns out he didn't murder her.Smith confesses and Kennedy is free to go home to understanding wife.Too long and too fanciful
