Well done mystery
13 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this to be a very satisfying story that works on a number of levels. It's a tight, clever script with good dialogue, is true to the character of Harry Orwell, the detective genre itself, and has some lighter moments of comedy.

But at its core it's ALL mystery. This story starts out in a very obvious direction and then out of nowhere throws a sharp curve to Harry O and the audience.

I'm a big fan of Robert Reed. I always enjoy seeing him playing against type and portraying shadowy and complicated characters. He did some extremely good work in the 70's that allowed him this freedom. This role would be among them. Reed's 'Paul Virdon' is a compelling enigma and Reed nails him.

I was impressed with the subplot and staging of the story that had Harry O attempting to track down the family origins of Reed's character. It leads Harry Orwell to a small town and a graveyard and is very well done.

However, this scene did remind me of the movie 'Family Plot', (which hadn't been made yet). I would guess these writers must have read 'The Rainbird Pattern', the book 'Family Plot' was loosely based on.
