Crawford Gets A Work-Out
A relaxed Miss Cooper is driving leisurely down a country road when bang. It's a flat, but one caused by a gunshot. Not waiting to find out, she rolls down to a convenient phone booth, and bam, Mathews is on the case. We know from the outset who the sniper is; the question is why. What's the reason for sniping at cars on a lonely country road. It takes a half-hour-- surprise, surprise-- to find out.

Pretty good HP. No Hollywood glamour here. It's all rickety rural locations and ordinary looking people. Highlight may well be a rotund Crawford hustling up a bushy hill to get a better bead on the sniper. He earned his money here. Anyway, it's an entertaining entry with a little different storyline.
