Storyline

A man and woman detective team investigate the murder of a corporate president, but because the deceased was a friend of the male detective, he is reluctant to believe the signs that point to the widow as the killer. Still, the team take turns watching her movements, but during the male detective's turn, his past friendship with the deceased gradually allows him access to the suspected widow, and it isn't long before they're in bed together. But when he discovers that she's the beneficiary to millions that had been meant for her husband, the detective is moved in ways quite unpredictable. Written by BOB STEBBINS <stebinsbob@aol.com>

A Thriller Plus
25 January 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent suspense thriller. Suzy Amis, a police detective, matches wits with a very sly murderer, as portrayed by Stacy Haiduk. This movie has more interesting twists and turns then what you'll find in three suspense thrillers. A ten from start to finish.
