Quotes

Tony Pendleton: Mr Gary Bax was immoral, disloyal and thoroughly selfish. I calculate there are at least a dozen other men who feel the way I do, and any one of them who's half-way decent would consider that killing Gary Bax was a public service - like clearing a blocked drain.

hum-drum murder mystery
18 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is a fairly routine though watchable whodunit that is notable mainly for the nearly salacious-for-the-time talk about the womanizing habits of a gossip columnist who gets murdered. Oh yes, the ever enticing Hazel Court is present as a past amour of the now-dead rakish fellow who tries to avoid suspicion for his murder. Her husband investigates so as not to have his honey nabbed by the coppers. London locations make it watchable.
