Storyline

The word "gallowglass" means servant, or one indebted to another. This is the story of a young man who feels such indebtedness to another young man after he is saved from committing suicide by jumping in front of an oncoming train. So strong is his sense of gratitude that he follows his 'savior' even to the kidnaping of a wealthy woman. But there are ulterior motives to the kidnaping, complicating it with other details that intertwine and make for a typical British murder mystery. Written by BOB STEBBINS <stebinsbob@aol.com>

Very Mysterious
6 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the finest mysteries I've ever seen. Edgy, anxiety-ridden from moment to moment, homo-erotic, heterosexual obsession, murder; it's got everything including sensational performances by all. A BBC production, the story reminded me so much of "The Servant", the film adaption of Harold Pinter's story/play where a creeping danger permeated the film throughout. "Gallowglass' however is much more sinister. A young man becomes 'servant' to the man who saved his life. From then on a dark world opens for him from which it's almost impossible to escape. Based on Ruth Rendell's(Barbara Vine) novel, this mystery will have you guessing until the last scene. Wear a coat because this one is going to give you chills.
