Another great episode that should be watched.
I really liked this episode. It was like getting a double scope of ice cream when you only paid for one. It was something good and it had a lot to offer.
The story starts out in a rural town called Logan City. It is a small town where everyone knows the background of everyone else. Back 18 years ago they had a murder and a Ben Devereaux was found guilty of the crime and put to death.
Now Donald Briggs (Harry Landers) has been doing some research and comes to Logan City to blackmail people he feels had something to do with the crime 18 years ago.
Marv Adams (Gary Vinson) is the son of Devereaux but he has no knowledge of his father's crime or how he was put to death. And Mr Briggs is trying to blackmail Ms Adams (Olive Blakeney) to keep the secret away from Marv.
It seems that during the trial a secret witness was used to convict Mr Devereaux and Mr Briggs had brought Ms X ,Lois Reed (Carol Kelly) to town to shake down the residence.( I thought the acting by Carol Kelly was some of the best work I have seen in a Perry episode)
During this time Mr Briggs ends up murdered and all the evidence points to Marv Adams as the killer. So Perry defends Mr Adams in this small town where big city lawyers are not welcomed.
Along the way we meet some interesting characters. And it seems all have some secret to keep and do not want old stories being brought back up some 18 years later. With the characters and the good acting the viewer is captured in the story to the point of total interest. The episode had so much going for it that the hour went by fast. I was totally caught up in the story and the goings-on in the small town.
And we get to see Perry, in this early episode, doing all he can for his client. It was very enjoyable and I am sure that you will find this episode to be all one wants in a Perry mystery.
By the end of the show, Perry has not only got his client freedom but also wrapped up a case that will haunt the town for years to come.
