Thieves run over a child while escaping after a robbery. A deadly hitman who likes to taunt his targets is hired to track them down. Stone moves to England, but the assassin follows. Loosely based on Donald Westlake's cult crime novel.
From England to Egypt, accompanied by his elegant and trustworthy sidekicks, the intelligent yet eccentrically-refined Belgian detective Hercule Poirot pits his wits against a collection of first class deceptions.
Frank Ross is out. And he wants to know who grassed. Who informed on him. Who caused him to serve years in prison.
This was a truly brilliant mini-series shown in England during the late '70s, about a failed bank robbery. The main character Ross, played by Tom Bell, is seeking revenge and the culprit behind his incarceration. I saw this again recently, and despite the flared trousers and floppy hair styles, it was still compelling to watch because of the acting by all concerned. And the build up to the climactic confrontation at the end is hard to compare with other TV series. It also stars Derrick O'Connor, who has appeared in Lethal Weapon 2, and Alias on TV.
They don't make 'em like this anymore...Unfortunately.
