The nature and lure of power: in Dallas, a councilman is on trial for corruption, the D.A. is running for the US Senate, a serial killer is slashing prostitutes, and a professor is murdered. Amanda Reeve is assigned to investigate the law-school killing. She hears rumors that the dead man offered women students good grades in exchange for sex. The trail leads her to two wealthy, beautiful students whose alibi is provided by a librarian. At the same time, the cops close in on the slasher. Meanwhile, Amanda misses her former lover, next in line to become D.A., and a reporter is fired for getting close to the truth about the Senate candidate. Is a cover-up or conspiracy in the works?

Pendulum is my favorite Rachel Hunter film. It is stylish and suspenseful, and kept me guessing all the way through the first time I saw it. Rachel Hunter seems to really find herself in her role as a troubled but determined detective, working a homicide that produces many twists and surprises. She brings a dark, brooding quality to her role that binds the rather wandering plot. Things got a little slow once in a while, but Rachel's style and charisma kept me interested. This is really an unpretentious but effective cop mystery with an intriguing cast of characters to enjoy. I think any fan of the genre, or Rachel Hunter will thoroughly enjoy this film. I see no need to reveal any of the plot at all. I recommend you just sit back and let it all develop for you.
