Whodunit?
30 March 2012 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

An above average entry. A shy cowboy is dry-gulched in a Dodge alleyway with only a saloon girl as witness. She identifies a Texas trailherder as the culprit. The dead cowboy's angry brother wants vengeance, while now Matt has to arrest the trailherder amidst a bunch of hostile Texas cowboys.

Pretty good suspense as we wonder what the true story is. Matt's visit to the cowboy campsite has a gripping undercurrent of hostility as the Texans refuse to recognize "Kansas law". In the angry brother's role, Martin Landau injects real emotion that helps drive the drama. Mystery and suspense are neatly combined in this better than average episode.
