Who murdered Ursula Howells on the heath?
13 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Account Rendered" is nifty little noir mystery, a cut above the average. It movies along nicely, the culprit is not obvious, and it brings out characters with notable imperfections.

The victim is a catty and adulterous Ursula Howells, wife of Griffith Jones. Disliked by men and women alike, and even by a lover, there is no shortage of potential killers.

The script holds our interest with plot complications and with the shaded characterizations. The only negative is the one-note acting of the inspector, who always barks his questions and observations.

At one point, the inspector eliminates all the suspects from suspicion. This will not do. He realizes that he must be missing something.

Among the pantheon of 1-hour or so British mysteries and crime stories with noirish glosses, "Account Rendered" is one that holds up well.
