Not so simple...the usual cast of suspects...
26 May 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The plot thickens when an urban garden is threatened out of existence by a land developer in A SIMPLE PLOT. In this case, the plot is really the pit into which the blind gardener falls. Since he's a man who knew his way around his garden with the help of a trained sight dog and his own skills, it becomes obvious to Laura and Rosemary that they have a murder on their hands.

Things get even scarier when it turns out that several people may have had motives for murdering the blind man. I spotted the real villain of the piece early on, which made the rest of the story a little less suspenseful until the final ten minutes when the suspense is given a boost by a clever ending.

MICHAEL SIBERRY is impressive as a man who seems to have a lot on his mind as the story takes a dangerous turn.
