I read no reviews of this book prior to reading it; I wanted no preconceptions just because it was written so famous an author.

I'll admit that I felt it a little slow at first, but then something rather miraculous happened. I found myself thinking of the characters more and more; I found myself wanting to have "just another 5 minutes" even when reading was making me late; I realised there was an ever-increasing ratcheting up of tension to an almost unbearable point. And wow! I am so glad that I persevered with a book that I could so easily have given up on within a chapter or two!

Wrongfully Accused [DVD] [1998] [Region 1] [US Imp&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Nielsen
5.0 out of 5 stars Just loved it!, 13 Feb 2014
Leslie Nielsen is just SO good in this genre of movie and, to my mind, this is one of his best. We laughed and laughed and even had to stop the DVD at some points just to recover. Appalling puns, terrible sight gags, ham acting - it's all there and guaranteed to make you feel you've had a great time in the comfort of your own home. Thoroughly recommended!
