  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Andrew Wyke (Caine) is a brilliant and successful crime novelist who lives a very lavish lifestyle. Although he is no Sleuth, Andrew discovers that his wife is having an affair with young hairdresser Milo Tindal (Law). Wily Andrew invites young Milo to his country estate to play an increasingly dangerous game of cat and mouse. When the two English gentlemen's game of one-upmanship spirals out of control, it is game over for one of them. (Stacey Pendry)
