A crime writer helps the police to investigate a murder he has committed
This crime film was initially to be called Murder by the Book and includes a scene at the end where a couple of characters race to a railway station in a car. This used Taplow, in Buckinghamshire, and there is an unusual shot from the footbridge of the car heading for the station entrance with what looks like an ex-GWR ‘4300’ Class 2-6-0 approaching with a train. In addition to this, there is a more conventional shot of the train arriving into the platform, plus a very darkened night shot of an express passing the camera in close up, the locomotive of which can not be identified.
