Suspenseful and entertaining. The scheme and plot twist with a sinking feel in the end!
This episode of "The Hitchhiker" titled "Ghostwriter" is well done and probably one of the better written episodes of the entire series. The plot takes an unexpected twist too. You have the always slick and sly Willem Dafoe as a struggling author who just can't sell any books and he's lost the desire to write. So he comes up with his own little scheme only to make it look like his agent Tony(Barry Bostwick) and unfaithful wife Debby(Dayle Haddon)killed him for love and money! Only then this episode takes a memorable turn and plot twist, I will not give it away for those who haven't seen it, though the little scheme backfires as the planned fiction drama sinks down the river! Look for character actor M. Emmet Walsh as an eager and tough detective also. Overall great episode of the series well acted and written.
