  • Sam Landry is a writer of detective stories. He has had a tragedy occur in his real life. He uses his stories as a form of escape, and in order to cope. When things become too much for him, he writes himself into one of these and makes a change of sorts.

    Ok, this was a really good story. Generally I don't like what the movies and television do with Stephen King stories and I had sworn off of them for ages. However, I am totally enjoying what I've seen thus far and Umney's Last Case is no exception. (I must admit that Crouch End was kinda strange but I liked it). Bill Macy was excellent in the dual role and I actually felt like I was reading a story. It was like seeing Stephen King himself writing and placing himself in the role of the character. The beginning caught me a little off guard, but that was ok, because it flowed right into the heart of the story and never once lost my interest. The ending was perfect Stephen King irony.
