Facing daily harangues from his irate superior, Stephens - now aided by the urbane Max - finds few clues other than a possible connection to their wartime posting to Scotland where they were supposed to create illusions to fool the Germans. Then the body count rises, in a murder resembling another magic trick. Well-paced, charming, evocative...it's a delightful 5.
