Storyline

Joanne Kilbourn, ex-detective turned university lecturer, is still haunted by the unsolved murder of her politician husband, Ian. At a fund raiser picnic thrown by her husband's old running-mate, Andy Boychuk, Jo and her old partner Millard overhear Andy arguing with a young woman who claims he is the devil. When the woman turns up dead later that night, Andy is Millard's chief suspect. Jo must determine whether or not her friend is guilty, and get to the truth behind the murder. Meanwhile, she continues to try to help her three children deal with the death of their father, and to integrate her newly adopted daughter, Taylor, into the family. Written by Sidekick

Second Joanne Kilborn film in the series
31 July 2003 | by (Chesterfield, VA) – See all my reviews

In this film we see the character of Joanne Kilborn continue to move forward in her personal life, while continuing to impress us with her keen investigation skills. This time the murder victim is her late husband's political buddy. And while she moves ever closer to solving the case, she has to face disappointment and disillusionment in this man she had respected and admired for so many years. Once again, Wendy Crewson brings this wonderful character to life and through her top notch performance the audience becomes more enthralled with this spunky widow who has the tenacity of a bull dog. Only Ms. Crewson could find just the right blend of toughness and tenderness that keeps us all on the hook, right to the very end. See this film....then hurry on to the third installment - "The Wandering Soul Murders".
