    circumstances surrounding his childhood chum’s death may be more complex than what’s visible on the surface. The mystery genre -- for both literature and film -- often plays on the idea that the evidence available may not always have the meaning it appears to represent.

    One Corpse Too Many is a mystery book by Ellis Peters and is the second book in the Chronicles of Brother Cadfael.

    Even with the few scenes that felt elongated, which most every movie has, it often had me on the edge of my seat guessing what was going to happen next. Nusair’s comment also does not make sense when he speaks of the lack of compelling attributes. There are plenty of fascinating attributes in the movie.
