A Good Solid "B" Whodunnit
15 August 1999 | by gnrzSee all my reviews

There's much to enjoy in this very good example of a "B" movie whodunnit. It's fun trying to figure out who the killer is as things move along toward the final climatic scene.

The female writer of a radio series about unsolved crimes makes an on-air announcement that during next week's show she will solve an old murder mystery and expose the murderer on-air. Following along with her as she searches for clues to the murderers identity while two other people also get murdered by the same killer is just plain good old fashioned fun. Enjoy....
