A woman teams up with her husband's lover.
13 November 2001 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

Pretty darn good for a made-for-TV comedy/mystery. After her husband (John Ritter)is found murdered in the apartment of his prostitute mistress(Markie Post), a very naive young woman(Cindy Williams)joins forces with the hooker to solve the murder. The two run into trouble with some bad guys that have unfinished business with the dead man.

Also in the cast are: Jack Nance, James Whitmore Jr. and Chris Mulkey.
