A great Slesar story
27 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

Henry Slesar was a great plotter, and an expert at mystery short stories. This is an example of Slesar at the top of his craft. The story starts simply enough, with a young ex-con seeking out the family of a prison buddy. But in the course of 25 minutes, the plot takes several turns that have the viewer wondering what direction it will go. Is the ex-con trying to rob the family? Will he rob his employer? Who is sending thugs to beat him up? Is he covering up an old robbery? (One of the thugs is Jerry Seinfeld's "Uncle Leo".) More possibilities are added at every turn, and the wrap-up comes as a surprise, but a very plausible one. This is the kind of script that made AHP such a fun show to watch. Not predictable, but also not implausible.
