Strangely compelling. You won't see the ending coming.


I agree with Shelby. That was a well constructed resolution to the issue at hand, which made for a good ending. A good listen. Recommend you give this play 45 minutes of your life.


Have to say a very original mystery. In my 50 years I have read thousands of mysteries. From the complete Sherlock Holmes to Agatha Christie. From Dashiell Hammett's The Thin Man and Boston Blackie to Columbo and Murder She Wrote. From the Hardy Boys to Nancy Drew. This episode I find is quite the original. A breath of fresh air.


A little bird told me that this was going to be a fantastic episode. And he was right.


I was compelled to listen to this from reading the other reviews, only to find it somewhat disappointing. I was expecting so much more. The storyline carried you along only to finish with a simple ending. It was entertaining but, in my opinion, only average.


Spoiler alert! I though a squirrel or crow might've "done it." And Mr. Townsend had serious confrontation issues. Turns out Ms. Pruitt did need to doubt herself, at all.

That should read: Turns out Ms. Pruitt did NOT need to doubt herself, at all.

Very interesting radio theater. Good lessons about integrity and steadfastness.


Hear! Hear! Great points.

I very much enjoyed this episode. The whole interview gone sour element was intriguing and the main character’s determination to figure out why kept my interest. Twist ending was clever.
