    Tom Wilkinson, Jane Lapotaire, Peter Vaughan and Nickolas Grace star in this stylish dramatisation of Dashiell Hammett’s classic detective story.

But then Archer is shot dead, and Miss Wonderley’s story turns out to be a lie - just like her name, which is actually Brigid O’Shaughnessy. And Miss O’Shaughnessy keeps on lying.

    With a bunch of heavies at his elbow and the police on his tail, Sam needs to think fast if he’s to outlive the person who killed his partner…
