This cable TV adaptation of an Elmore Leonard novel is pedestrian, but it has the distinction of being based on a genuine modern crime thriller. David Caruso is so cool and laid back as a low-key ex-con that he appears to be sleeping while standing up a lot of the time. Marg Helgenbrenner is appropriately distraught as a rich widow being preyed upon, although a little less distress and a little more forthright action might have helped. It seems to take forever to get this thing going, and the real stuff doesn't happen until the third act. Jeff Tabor, best known for his several "Buffy" appearances, is in full reptilian mode as the chief villain who covets Marg's fortune. See it on a slow Saturday. Better yet, skip this and read the book. Not Leonard's best, but hardly his worst.
