(Great Britain / USA, 2006, 94 minutes)

During a magic show, a dead journalist appears to an American student, telling her that the son of a lord may be the serial killer all London is looking for. Lightweight but enjoyably old-fashioned murder mystery whose greatest drawback is its writer-director’s presence in a sidekick role that is surplus to the plot’s requirements.
