Storyline

Alan Masters is a despicable businessman with his hands in organized crime. He marries Diane, a kind and gentle woman, and abuses and batters her viciously. Sergeant John Reed has had enough of his city's organized crime and, against the wishes of his dirty-cop superiors, tries to get evidence against Alan Masters. After Alan finds out that Diane has been helping Reed, he beats her to death...and its up to John Reed to put him away for it, and clean up the dirty cops that want to stop him. Part I starts with Diane's death and then, in a flashback, details her struggles against abuse and Reed's struggles as he coaches her to gather evidence against Alan. Part II deals with Reed's struggles with intimidating cops. Written by Sam Hayes <gshayes@mail.gwi.net>

It's based on real life events about a corrupt lawyer and the cop who finally caught him!!
3 January 2000 | by (VACAVILLE,CA,USA) – See all my reviews

This 4 hour mini series that aired in 1992 is about a corrupt lawyer(actually a D.A)played by Treat Williams in a very excellent role for him. But the D. A has a few problems, a policeman is looking into his crimes. The movies follows the woman Allan Master(Treat Williams) is in love with, a cover-up of his own wife's death at his hands. It also shows just how far the police and the courts will go to catch a criminal at work in their own city. Eventually , the remaining women(who know of Master's extra activities ) are called in to testify in court. The ending was a little long, consdering it took me a few days to watch this suspenseful mini series. This mini-series also co-star Embeth Davidtz(Fallen), Brian Dehenny(Never Cry Wolf) and James Rebhorn(The Game,Talented Mr.Ripley,ID4). This mini-series takes place in the city of Chicago. I do not know the exact time this took place. I suspect the 1990's or the late 1980's or the 80's. If you like mini series with a little suspense and a heavy drama/thriller you might like this movie!!BTW, this movie is not currently out there to buy at this time!!!But I bet you could find a copy to rent somewhere!!!
