Storyline

A female mayor (Victoria Principal) of Albuquerque gets embroiled in a fight over the development of a new economic center. In the midst of this, she receives blackmail photos of an overnight fling she had with a stranger and threats of blackmail. On top of all this, the city is under siege by a serial killer who hunts powerful women. When the FBI moves in for the investigation, the chief officer (Ted Wass) turns out to be the stranger. Ralph Waite shows up as a friend of the mayor pressuring her for the development. Elaine Stritch plays her mother, Hector Elizondo is the city attorney, and William Lucking is the police chief.

This was actually pretty good......
11 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

....for a nice Saturday night, had nothing else going on anyway, kind of movie. It had Victoria Principal in it so you go in thinking it's going to be a little cheesy - no offense VP. It actually was a good story and though you kind of can figure how it's going to go there are a few surprises. I love the 80's clothing. I wasn't paying all that much attention to the folks in the background since even Academy Award winning movies rarely come out looking "authentic". The first poster was stuck to the fact that there weren't any Mexicans or Indians as the townspeople. For this kind of movie I say "Who cares". This was more for the story than the scenery. There was a lot going on here and it occupied me for it's entirety. I'd recommend it to anyone wanting a nice escape for a few hours.
