| Nice surprise
Det Andy Doyle (Bill Elliott) suspects that a suicide is actually a murder. He suspects the victim's son, Wallace (Tom Drake) who is blind and he pursues him until he gets to the truth..

This is a good detective mystery that is well-acted by all. A special mention must go to Minerva Urecal who plays the nosy landlady and neighbour "Mrs Kelly" and Beverley Garland who plays Drake's girlfriend "Phyllis". Andy Doyle has a similar style to Columbo in that he keeps coming back to pester people. It's quite amusing although I'm not sure that this was intended. He's a right pain in the arse. But a pleasant one! He's very straight-talking but meets his match with several other straight-talkers in the cast, notably Mrs Kelly on their first meeting. She's quite funny.

The storyline will keep you guessing as to what really occurred and it moves along at a nice pace. This was a surprisingly good discovery and I will be looking out for more of these Bill Elliott detective stories.
