Perplexing murder mystery about an attorney, Eldridge, who picks up a murderous hitchhiker. The good Samaritan becomes the suspect in a murder case himself when an estrangement from his wife and some bad business dealings cast suspicion on him. Two detectives, Blake and Travis, sift through
the clues and interrogate all the suspects as they slowly weave their way into a series of flashbacks that become unnecessarily slow and complicated. Strange structure ruins an otherwise interesting narrative.
