Staff Reviews

Denny Braintree, writer for a model railroad magazine, stranded in Montpelier in a snowstorm, is mistaken for missing local Homer Dumpling. Denny soon becomes the prime suspect in a murder, first as Homer, whose identity he's assumed, then as Denny. Clever, very funny. — Louise Jones
