A body is found with a case full of money lying next to it. Sheriff Ray Dolezal investigates the crime, was it murder or suicide? Where did the money come from? He gets a phone number and dials away, when the person answers he decides to pretend he is the victim. The sheriff becomes Bob Spencer and that is where the story takes its first of many turns. Good performances all around and a very intriguing story that keeps you guessing throughout. I enjoyed this movie despite some shortcomings.
