Very good little mystery with excellent support by Robert Wilke, my favorite actor.
2 July 2000 | by sfkidjjSee all my reviews

A very good mystery. Good plot with my favorite actor, Robert J. Wilke as Sheriff Rex Brandon who should have received more recognition for his acting ability in his career. Jim Hutton was a lot better in this vehicle than his former "Ellery Queen" series. A good surprise ending.
