If you are an Angie Dickinson fan then you won't want to miss this made for television political blackmail thriller. Our heroine is at her best pursuing justice but this time without a badge and gun. Don Murray, Robert Loggia and Tom Skerritt are good in supporting roles that help her overcome some past indiscretions in her quest to become attorney general.
